Anton Bruckner Private University

Doctoral studies at Anton Bruckner Private University - Call for Applications 2021

Application deadline for entry in the Winter semester of 2021/2022: 19.02.2021

The Anton Bruckner Private University (ABPU) in Linz Austria invites potential candidates to apply for the academic or artistic doctoral program. 

What do we offer?

Individual supervision and support of the team

Doctoral candidates at ABPU will receive individual supervision from leading international experts active in their fields. The individual personal coaching is embedded in a larger professional learning environment preparing doctoral students for their professional career as (artistic) researchers. 

Interdisciplinarity, networking and (artistic) scholarly socialisation

To further the development of transdisciplinary competence, as well as (artistic) scholarly socialization and the formation of a professional network, both, the artistic-scholarly and academic doctoral students, are trained in a joint program. The courses provide the doctoral students with academic knowledge and methodological skills, enable them to support their individual research process within and through the collective of a larger research community, and offer them opportunities for professionalization and networking within the international research world. 

Within the framework of the series “PARL-Platform for Art and Research Linz” invited guest researchers of high international reputation complement the methodological and theoretical training and introduce the doctoral students to the diversity of (artistic) research. 

International cooperation

From the outset and continuing throughout the programme of study, our doctoral candidates will be offered a broad professional network through our cooperation with four renowned universities for co-supervision:

University for Music and the Performing Arts Vienna
Paris Lodron University, Salzburg
University of Art and Design Linz
Bern University of the Arts (Switzerland).
