You would like to write your PhD as a member of the EC2 Center/BIG-NSE PhD School and need a scholarship/position (for a planned PhD start in October 2021)?
Then congratulations, you are on the right webpage here!
For the next season (starting 10/2021), we will 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 has become different. Applicants are now only allowed to apply for previously determined projects, which are published at the beginning of October. The project leaders of UniSysCat submit project proposals to the EC2/BIG-NSE Executive Board, who then decide which projects proposals are to be advertised on our website. The latest list of accepted project proposals can be found here.
Good luck and hopefully see you soon in Berlin!
