Objectives and funding

»Teaching Assistantships« offer international PhD students at BTU the possibility to gain experience either in teaching activities. Professors of BTU may endorse outstanding international PhD candidates to assist them in teaching courses. Teaching assistantships provide new possibilities for career development.

Successful candidates can receive a teaching assistantship of 8 hours per week as graduate teaching assistant (»Wissenschaftliche Hilfskraft«) from April until September 2020. 

Please note only a limited number of teaching assistantships will be available. If you received an assistantship before keep in mind that the GRS welcomes applications from newcomers. You may still apply more than once for a teaching assistantship.


Eligible candidates are international PhD students who are currently enrolled at BTU. You are not eligible for funding if you hold a position as »Akademischer Mitarbeiter/in« at BTU (i.e. staff member).

This programme does not support your doctoral research project. It is designed to provide you with the possibility to gain further experience in teaching at BTU and to promote your career as young researchers at our university.

This project is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funds from the German Federal Foreign Office
