Become a researcher

Doctoral students at SOFI are enrolled at either the Department of Sociology or the Department of Economics. The student is admitted to a doctoral program at one of the departments and placed at SOFI. These doctoral students get office space at SOFI and are thus integrated into the daily research environment at the department, where they also have their degree supervisors.
