Selection procedure

Selection procedure at the IMPRS-LSHO

Applications are collected until 31 December and are then reviewed by the research groups at the MPI EVA and LU from January until March of the following year. Based on the applicants' academic qualification and grades, previous fieldwork and/or laboratory experience, motivation and based on the letters of recommendation a pre-selection of especially suitable candidates is made. These candidates will be invited to Leipzig for an recruitment event in April/May.

During the recruitment event in Leipzig applicants give a talk on a previous research project (e.g. the topic of their Master's thesis), meet with researchers and PhD students of the group they applied with to discuss the candidates' previous training and research experience, to evaluate their future plans and learn more about the respective group's ongoing research projects. Following the recruitment event, selected candidates will be invited to further interviews. 

Travel and accommodation expenses are typically covered by the Leipzig School of Human Origins.
