Bruno Castanho Silva (PhD 2012-2017)
Post-doctoral researcher, Cologne Center for Comparative Politics, University of Cologne
"Pursuing a PhD in political science at CEU was one of the best decisions I took in my academic career. The department is incredibly diverse in both methodological and substantive interests, with world class scholars on areas ranging from experimental political science to network analysis and qualitative research. More than that, because of its small size and number of students, the close mentorship and supervision one can get at CEU are unparalleled to any other department I have seen. Students are encouraged to be part of research projects from the start and to develop a broad set of skills. These factors make a huge difference when going out on the contemporary academic job market."
