Application Process

All doctoral positions in the Faculty of Computer Sciences will follow the admission process described below. This includes university-funded, third-party funded, and non-funded positions.

The application and admission process is as follows:

  1. Applicants must submit their documents electronically by the deadline.
  2. The completeness of all submitted application documents is checked by the assigned administrative office. If necessary, documents with a deadline will be requested subsequently.
  3. Suitable applicants are invited to an interview by the advertising supervisor. Interviews will be performed in person, on the phone or via video-conference.
  4. The advertising supervisors select an applicant, which also includes a confirmation of supervision.
  5. The DSPL/Vice DSPL decides whether the applicant is qualified for doctoral studies and if so, under which conditions.
  6. In case of a positive decision and with the confirmation of supervision (by a supervisor and a co-supervisor), the selected candidate is admitted to doctoral studies as well as DoCS.
  7. Please note that the admission into the doctoral programme is required when being employed as PraeDoC assistant or predoctoral researcher. However, application for admission has to be done seperately and individually by each candidate. Click here for information on the admission procedere.
