Selection and Admission

All successfully submitted applications are evaluated by the steering committee based on scientific competence, CV, letters of recommendation, and suitability for the programme. Incomplete applications or applications received by email or regular mail will not be considered.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview and a tour through the research groups. Travel expenses for the on-site interviews will be covered by the IMPRS-QST.

Interview Days in Munich

During the interview days, the applicants give a short presentation of a research project that they have conducted as part of their academic training. Also, they will be introduced to different research options and will have the opportunity to meet selected IMPRS faculty members of their interest.

Following these days, the admissions committee will select successful applicants based on the judgment of all PI's regarding the performance during the interview days. Applicants will be notified within one to two weeks after the interview about the outcome of the selection.

Selected students will be assigned to the groups according to their preferences and suitability for the available PhD projects.

If you have applied, please save the date: The Interview Days in Munich will take place on June 8th and 9th, 2017!
