Our future is open, that of individuals and that of societies... Nothing is final and fixed.

Norbert Elias

Would you like to pursue a PhD in sociology at the University of Basel in order to gain the qualifications necessary for an academic career? Or for a challenging position in research or the professional world? If so, you will need an excellent master’s degree in sociology or a related discipline and a doctoral project that fits with the research specialties of the department’s chairs. If you are interested, please contact the professor you would like to have as supervisor directly, ideally with a CV and a brief outline of your planned research topic.
