PhD at the University of Silesia as part of T4EU PhD Tracks

The University of Silesia in Katowice is initiating a new path for educating doctoral students as part of the Transform4Europe consortium of European universities. Candidates accepted for projects under T4EU PhD Tracks will be doctoral students at the University of Silesia, but they will carry out some of their tasks at the partner universities of the Transform4Europe consortium, under the supervision of so-called advisors – researchers from these universities, who will support the doctoral student and the supervisor in the preparation of the doctoral dissertation.

Each doctoral student will have one or more advisors, and therefore – they will spend part of their education at foreign European universities, for example in Alicante (Spain), Trieste (Italy), Pirmorska (Slovenia) or Kaunas (Lithuania).
