Interviews and Admission
After the end of the application round all submitted applications are carefully checked
...for quality. For applications from abroad it is verified if the university degree enables the admission for PhD studies at a German university.
The shortlisted candidates will be invited to Düsseldorf for personal interviews. Alternatively, telephone interviews may be conducted. You will be informed about the status of your application approximately one month after the application deadline.
At the interview you will have the opportunity to present your previous work and to discuss possible research projects with scientists of the IMPRS-SurMat. There is no need to get in touch with potential supervisors before the interview or to hand in research proposals.
The starting date is individual and fixed by agreement between the supervisor and you.
