I am planning to apply for a Ph.D. grant. I have two options, one in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and the other one in Stuttgart, Germany.
The one in Amsterdam is 38h per week. The remuneration is
€2,395 to € 4,402 gross per month and a favorable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants, I am not Dutch.
The one in Stuttgart is 40h per week and the remuneration is according to
(TV-L E13 level).
How much the net salary will be? I don't know how much income tax will apply in either of these countries.
I know there are a lot of other factors I need to take into consideration. If you have any suggestions or recommendations, please share them here.
Thank you so much.
