Selection of candidates

Candidates are selected according to a two-step process.

First, applications are reviewed by two of the principal investigators of the GRK – the potential supervisor while the other is an expert in a different field. This procedure helps guarantee the project's interdisciplinary compatibility or character.

Second, based on the outcome of the PIs' assessments, the interdisciplinary selection committee will invite shortlisted candidates for video interviews to be conducted on July 11 and 12. The interviews will be held online to ensure a fair selection process for all applicants.

The selection committee then ranks the candidates according to the PIs' assessments and interview impressions. The candidates will be informed by the end of July and start their positions on October 1, 2024. 

MA Certificates must be present by the signature date of your working contract, i.e., in September.

The Agreement on Doctorate Supervision ("Betreuungsvereinbarung") will be granted by accepting the applicant to the GRK. They have the Agreement on Supervision by the PI at hand, which is unnecessary to start the application. Docs will be enrolled and employed at the university of their primary supervisor.
