The TUW Doctoral School would like to inform all TUW employees that the next Doctoral College Call has been postponed until Autumn 2021.


Two new doctoral programs for TU Wien

As part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) funding program, the EU is jointly funding two new major doctoral programs at TU Wien.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) were established by the European Commission to promote cross-national and cross-sector mobility and career development of researchers and R&D staff in engineering and management and to enhance the attractiveness of scientific careers. TU Wien is now benefiting from this twice: Two new doctoral programs can now be launched within the framework of the COFUND grant - jointly financed by TU Wien and the EU. In total, the doctoral programs will be funded with 9.3 million euros.


The doctoral program "Logics for Computer Science", which will be led by Prof. Stefan Szeider, will focus on the application of mathematical logic to concrete tasks in computer science. A consortium of top computer scientists will supervise 20 particularly talented young researchers and work with them on new scientific findings. The doctoral program will cover a broad range of current research issues - from artificial intelligence and databases to algorithms and verification, security issues and cyber-physical systems.


The doctoral program "ENROL - the Engineering for Life Sciences Doctoral Program" is strongly interdisciplinary. 20 young researchers, who have achieved excellent results, will conduct research on functional interfaces between inorganic and bio-organic systems as doctoral students within the framework of the program. The program is coordinated by nanobiotechnologist Dr. Ioanna Giouroudi together with a management team including Prof. Gerhard Schütz (Biophysics), Prof. Philipp Thurner (Biomechanics) and Prof. Gerhard Kahl (Soft Matter Theory). The Principal Investigators involved come from the faculties of Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Management Sciences, Mathematics and Geoinformation, Physics, and Technical Chemistry.
