Time Desks

Are you working on a doctoral thesis and need to be near your institute or the library for a limited period of time? Are you living in another city and need a temporary working space at Kiel University? Are you in the final phase of your doctorate, finishing a publication or evaluating material and need therefore a temporary work place? Do you need a temporary office on the campus for other reasons?

The Graduate Center offers this opportunity for Kiel University's doctoral candidates, guest doctoral candidates as well as guest researchers who are working together with doctoral candidates at Kiel University. The rooms are located in the Graduate Center's office building at Leibnizstraße 3, near the faculty blocks ("Fakultätenblöcke"), the University Library, the Center for Molecular Biosciences and the Sports Center.

The time desk is allocated for three months, after that a renewal for a further three months will be considered. Another renewal is not possible. You have the possibility, however, to apply for a time desk more than once during your doctorate. The Graduate Center therefore recommends that you use these phases to structure your doctorate and your work processes.

Multidisciplinarity and internationality have their home here

The "Integrated School of Ocean Sciences" of the Cluster of Excellence "The Future Ocean", the Graduate School "Human Development in Landscapes" and the doctoral programme "Quantitative Economics", along with many of their doctoral candidates, have their offices at Leibnizstraße 3. In this way, Kiel University actively lives its interconnecting and interactive academic cultures. Furthermore, the office building is the home of the Continuing Education and the Career Center.

At the seminar building next door, Leibnizstraße 1, many events and courses concerning your interdisciplinary qualifications take place.
