DOCC is a novel interdisciplinary EC H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND doctoral training programme for international high-potential early-stage researchers (ESRs) with a focus on modelling and simulation in basic, natural and engineering sciences at the University of Innsbruck (UIBK) in Austria.

DOCC will enroll 15 highly qualified ESR fellows, who wish to obtain a doctoral degree in one of the programme's research areas in mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering science, atmospheric science and computer science. Fellows will be employed for 36 months, preferably by a single call, within the 60 months programme duration.  All fellows will be provided with the possibilities and encouragement to assume secondments (between a few weeks and several months) to international academic and intersectoral industrial partner organisations. The PhD training programme will be provided in English.

UIBK is the largest research and education institution in western Austria, with more than 28'000 students and 4'800 staff and faculty members. Located in the heart of the Alps, Innsbruck offers excellent facilities for research and studying in a spectacular environment. International rankings confirm the university’s important role in scientific research, in 2017 its scientists produced almost 4'000 publications. UIBK is very well integrated into the European research and education network, and is among the world's top universities regarding internationality of research, with an exceptionally large number of international faculty members and students. Through some 400 partnerships and numerous agreements it has established important relationships with institutes and universities worldwide.

Within this productive environment the university‘s 16 faculties provide a broad spectrum of programmes in all fields of study. The DOCC training programme is centred in the highly evaluated fields of "Scientific Computing"  and "Physics" within the six research focus areas at UIBK.
