You would like to write your PhD as a member of the EC2 Centre/BIG-NSE PhD School and need a scholarship/position (for a planned PhD start in October 2019)?
Then congratulations, you are on the right webpage here!
For the next season (starting 10/2019), we have seven EC2/BIG-NSE scholarships/positions to offer.
Before you apply for one of the scholarships/positions, please have a look at our Recruitment Philosophy webpage to be sure the School is what you are looking for and that you have a chance of being accepted as a future PhD student. Please be aware that the application process is a very competitive one and that only the very best students from the most prestigious institutions in the world stand a chance to be offered one of our scholarships/positions. Typically, only not even 10% of our applicants get invited for an interview, and even less win one of our few grants.
From 2019 on, the recruitment procedure of our Centre/School will be different. Applicants will only be able to apply for previously determined projects, which will be published at the beginning of February. The project leaders of UniSysCat are currently submitting (deadline: January 27, 2019) project proposals to our EC2/BIG-NSE Executive Board. At the end of January, the Board will decide which projects proposals are to be advertised on our website (expectedly at the beginning of February). The list of projects will be submitted on this page (currently empty; only visible when registered).
The application portal will only open once the list of projects is known. From this moment on, it will be possible for you to apply for one of our scholarships/positions using our application portal. This portal is only accessible to duly registered users who have logged into the webpage. The first step for you will thus be to go to our Login Portal and to log in there. Then, a link to the Application Portal will appear and you will be able to fill in the necessary forms and upload the required documents.
Good luck and hopefully see you soon in Berlin!
