Written applications will be considered by the supervisors of the projects applied for, and by a team selected from PIs at the participating institutions. Short-listed candidates will be invited for interview, either by video conference, in person or both, depending on circumstances.
Most of the IMPRS places will be allocated in a workshop in Dresden which we organise after each annual call for applications. While we had to resort to online interviews in the past two years, we plan to hold an in-person workshop for the recruitment cycle 2022/23, which will take place on 7 - 9 February 2023. We will discuss the details of the workshop directly with invited candidates.
If we receive applications of prospective IMPRS students at a time which makes a participation in the next workshop inconvenient, we will find other ways to give the applicants an opportunity to present themselves.
Once the selection procedure is completed, we intend to give feedback to the applicants as quickly as possible.
