Doctoral candidates who are currently writing their PhD theses in an externally-funded research project at one of the following BTS-affiliated institutions are eligible to apply for research affiliation:
• Freie Universität Berlin
• Hertie School of Governance

• Collaborative Research Center 700 (SFB)
Research Affiliates should ideally be at the beginning of their PhD studies but need to have a concrete research proposal by the time of the application.
