For the second cohort of doctoral students (starting in autumn 2022), we are seeking up to 6 emerging researchers from the fields of film, dance, theatre, performance and transdisciplinary arts whose work involves performative and/or cinematic processes. Candidates must hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in an artistic or art-historical discipline and profound artistic practice spanning several years. Residence in Switzerland is not required, but participants must be willing to take part in activities in Zurich and at the partner university.

Sunday 21. November 2021

If you are interested and for further information, check out the Call for Applications in either German or English.

Since ZHdK is not entitled doctoral degrees in its own right, doctoral degrees/PhDs are awarded by a partner university. Our partner universities enable ZHdK doctoral candidates to earn a scientific-artistic or an artistic doctorate. Research activities, supervision and events take place partly in Zurich but mostly at the respective partner university.
