Online application closed

1st call Aug/Sep 2020

The first call of the Doctoral School in Microbiology and Environmental Sciences has been closed after its deadline on Sep 30, 2020. We offered 15 fully funded PhD positions and have received 743 applications.

We are currently evaluating all applications by scholary and scientific criteria. Selected applications will be invited for online interviews, which will also include a match-making step in which you meet faculty members that offer projects in the areas of your scientific interests. At this stage, the faculty members will introduce you to the potential project topics in their groups.

If you have applied, please stay tuned. The careful evaluation of 743 applications takes substantial time.

We have completed the first round of our screening process and ask for your continued patience as our faculty evaluates your applications. We aim to complete the second round of evaluations until the end of November.

2nd call Spring 2021

The second call of the Doctoral School in Microbiology and Environmental Sciences is planned for early 2021.
