Our application platform is now open. Deadline for application is Febuary 22, 2016 With the application we ask for a letter of motivation, a formal CV, certificates, two references and a research proposal.

After the deadline, all applications are reviewed by the coordinator and the faculty and each student is graded in terms of their grades, scientific interestes, and more non-scientific characteristics. Approximately 15 of the best graded students will be invited to the selection symposim, which ist held in May.
