Calls for applications for our 5-year track are issued once a year. We strongly recommend submitting your application as early as possible. Submitting early will give us more time to carefully check your application and contact you if we have any questions. After submitting, you cannot make changes to your application anymore.
It is your responsibility to invite three referees who can provide reference letters and to follow up with the referees to ensure that letters will arrive by the deadline. Referees should be professionally established at the level of independent investigator, principal scientist, group leader, lecturer or above. They should know you well, both academically and personally and should evaluate your potential for graduate study and research.
We will consider only applications with all three recommendation letters provided within the application deadline.
