Selection of candidates

The selection of candidates follows a two staged protocol. Significant applications will be internally reviewed by one PI of the discipline of the applicant and by one PI external to the discipline in order to review the interdisciplinary compatibility or character of the project. Applicants who did their prior qualification with one of the PIs of the GRK will be reviewed by another PI. Based upon the written reviews the selection committee will invite candidates for a video interview by the end of June. The interviews will be held online in order to ensure an equal selection process for local, national, and international applicants. The interviews will then take place by mid-July. The candidates are ranked by the selection committee according to the reviews and the impressions gained in the interviews. The selected candidates will be informed by the end of July at the latest and should take up work on October 1st.
