PROMI - job opportunities for doctoral students with disabilities
PROMI is the abbreviation for the German project title 'Promotion inklusive' that can be translated to 'inclusive doctorate'. The PROMI Project provides 45 severely disabled graduates with the possibility to attain a doctorate degree. An annual 15 additional part-time jobs for doctoral students have been created, one at each of 21 partner universities in Germany in the years 2013 to 2022. The positions are limited to three- year contracts and liable to social security contributions. This gives doctoral students financial independence.
