Vacancies / Research Scholarships

The 1st-call deadlines for application (Nov-30, 2016 and Jun-22, 2017) have expired with all associated interviews having been conducted and final decisions based on the 1st-call pool made in the meantime.

Within the 1st-call context, the majority of research scholarships / PhD positions has successfully been awarded.

However, 5 sub-projects had to be re-announced owing to the fact that no suitable candidates could be spotted.

Meanwhile, also the 2nd-call deadline for application (Sep-17, 2017 - 23:59 CET) has expired with all related interviews having been conducted and final decisions based on the 2nd-call pool successfully made.
