Selection procedure

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 an online format for the recruitment cycle 2020/2021 due to the pandemic situation, we hope to welcome a group of candidates to Dresden for the next selection workshop which will take place on 15 - 16 February 2022. Details about the workshop, in particular if the event will be held on-site, in a virtual setting or a hybrid format, will be announced at a later time.

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.
