After a thorough multi-level evaluation of the all applications, shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview week in Dresden from 17–21 September 2018. Successful candidates will get an offer to work on their PhD project in one of our internationally acclaimed research groups. To learn more about our program, have a closer look at this website or read this article, published in the Scientia mag (PDF file).
