Selection of candidates
In a multistep procedure the candidates most appropriate to the programme are selected.
First all applications are checked for completeness and general match to the programme. In a second step, each pre-selected application is evaluated by three IMPRS Faculty members. Candidates are ranked and the best candidates are invited for the Interview Days. The Interview Days take place in Leipzig, and in the frame of this, applicants have to give a short talk, meet their potential supervisors and have the opportunity to get to know other PhD students and the Institute itself. Following the interviews the candidates are selected. The final results are announced between January and March.
The IMPRS NeuroCom will reimburse travel costs for the interviews.
