The Vienna Doctoral School of Theology and Research on Religion (VDTR) was founded in 2021 as a joint project of the Faculty of Protestant Theology (ETF), the Faculty of Catholic Theology (KTF) and RaT.

The goal of the School is to promote innovative, interdisciplinary research and to offer its doctoral students the opportunity to pursue their research interests in a trans- and interdisciplinary framework from the beginning of their doctoral studies.

Members of the School are part of a vibrant network of researchers* across a broad, international spectrum of disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and theology. In this way, VDTR brings together researchers* from diverse disciplines working on different religions.

In addition to fostering regular intellectual networking and providing support in the dissertation process, VDTR offers its doctoral students the opportunity to hone skills that will prepare them for the job market both inside and outside academia.
