"The German academic tradition is known worldwide for its high quality, partly due to the strong competition for professorships at universities. I came to Paderborn specifically because of how active the mathematical research is here. You can tell from the publications, the seminars and the guest lecturers that the level of mathematics at Paderborn is really high." "– Nikolay Dichev, PACE PhD-student


We challenge you to complete your PhD in 3 years. That means we look for intrinsically motivated students who will excel in our academic culture based on  research freedom.
At PACE, mathematicians talk to mechanical engineers, and physisists collaborate with software engineers. You will also profit from an extensive academic network far beyond Paderborn University.
We understand doctoral students need to focus on research. That is why we do not require you to teach. We also help you structure your 3 years to ensure success. And we take care of all the time-consuming administrative details.
We have excellent partnerships with companies such as Daimler, Lufthansa and Wincor Nixdorf. Through projects with our industry partners, your research can provide solutions to real world business problems.
Our students come from all over the world. During our program they can take advantage of a full program of intercultural activities, soft skill training, company visits, and German language classes.
At PACE you receive financial aid in the form of a fellowship, and reimbursement of  travel costs. We even reimburse the costs of your admission interview, whether you are accepted or not.
