UNU-EHS currently offers a doctoral programme in collaboration with a wide range of international universities. PhD students are usually integrated in ongoing research projects at UNU-EHS and are free to select a corresponding international university, such as the University of Bonn, the University of Barcelona or Kings College in London. Upon graduation, students are awarded a doctoral degree by their supporting international university.
UNU and the corresponding university combine their scientific expertise to offer a collaborative programme approach. This provides future leaders in the field of environment and human security with the analytical tools necessary for analysing the different dimensions of vulnerability and risk, ecosystem services and migration issues, while focusing on the unique characteristics and challenges of developing countries. PhD project positions are internationally advertised, and can be found under vacancies.
