Doctoral candidates in individual projects without affiliation to one of the Research School's doctoral programmes and post-docs may apply for membership online. The application requires the confirmation by a supervisor and the doctoral candidate admissions board of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar as well as a short motivation statement (max. 200 words).

Doctoral students and post-docs in the doctoral programmes become members of the Bauhaus Research School automatically. Members of other universities may also be granted membership if they are participating in one of the Research School's doctoral programmes.

The Bauhaus Research School currently has more than 300 members.
