Doctoral studies > Dissertation supervisors

Doctoral dissertations carried out within the PhD programme in History of Science (UAB-UB) will have to be written, registered and defended at one university or the other. They are therefore subject to general regulations of postgraduate studies of each institution. Students must select their supervisor according to the affinity of their research subjects. In case the supervisor does not belong to the university where the dissertation is registered, the student must have a tutor from this institution. We offer here a list of supervisors, specifying the institution they belong to and their research interests.
