Although the IOS does support Bachelor's and Master's students through internships and the (co‑)supervision of final theses, the core of its work in the promotion of young scholars lies in its measures to support doctoral candidates. The IOS employs doctoral candidates and integrates them into its research activities. Furthermore, doctoral candidates from Germany and abroad who are not employed at the Institute are supported in obtaining scholarships for guest research stays at the IOS and in taking part in projects at the IOS. The IOS organizes research colloquia, workshops for doctoral candidates and summer schools for post-graduates. It is also one of the institutions involved in the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies, which has been established by the University of Regensburg and LMU Munich as part of the German Excellence Initiative of Federal and State Governments.

The following doctoral candidates are currently employed at the IOS:

Elia Bescotti: "Secession, Non-Recognition and Identity Building in the post-Soviet politics of international law: Contested Sovereignties and Ontological Security between Territorial Integrity and Self-determination"

Nargiza Kilichova: International democracy and rule of law promotion in Central Asia and South Caucasus – Places and Spaces of Struggle

Michael Rindler: Internationaler Handel und Migration unter besonderer Berücksichtigung kultureller und sprachlicher Aspekte

Jeremias Schmidt: Die Kriegserfahrung der Königlich Bayerischen Armee an der Ostfront 1915–1918
