Application Process

All candidates are required to complete an online application form. Before you can submit your application, at least one of your referees must have completed an online reference. A second reference must be submitted by the final submission deadline for your application to be considered.

All the submitted applications are reviewed by the CeMM Faculty and selected candidates are invited to participate in a video interview.

Shortlisted candidates are then invited to Vienna for the PhD hearing in April. All candidates are asked to introduce themselves through a presentation followed by three panel interviews with CeMM Faculty members. There is also the opportunity to meet other research group members and attend an informal dinner.

At the end of the second day of the hearing all candidates are asked to submit their preference regarding which research groups they would like to work with, and on the third day of the hearing selected candidates are invited back for 1:1 interviews with the group leaders.

Positions are offered by CeMM Faculty in the beginning of May. The program start date is October 1st every year.
