Theses

Every year, dozens of PhD candidates take their doctoral degree in our division. They record their research in a thesis. This page contains an overview of all theses published after 2016.

video pitch offers PhD candidates the opportunity to summarize the importance of their research in a clear and concise manner.

An overview of all PhD candidates who took their doctoral degree between 1996 and 2016 can be found in the book '20 years Julius Center: what has become of our PhD candidates'. This was published on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Julius Center.
