Application


Basically, announcement of open positions and entry into the school are possible at any time. However, in order to increase visibility, we intend to hire new students for open positions via  bundled calls in the future.

We want to attract highly qualified MSc graduates in Pharmaceutical, Nutritional or Sport Sciences, Chemistry, (Molecular) Biology or related fields. Application documents should include a motivation letter, abstract of your master thesis, CV, university certificates (Bachelor and Master diplomas) and transcript of records, and contact of at least one reference. It is the applicants' responsibility to submit all required documents electronically via the Apply@PhaNuSpo platform until the respective deadline.

Only complete applications are evaluated and candidates get shortlisted according to their academic excellence and motivation, independent of gender, race, religion or nationality. Fluent command in English is mandatory, though. Shortlisted candidates are invited to interviews on site/digital which include in depth discussion with the hiring Principal Investigators (PIs)s and the aplicant's presentation on his/her master project or a scientific paper selected by the PIs. Candidates get informed about acceptance usually within two weeks following the interviews.

In case you bring your own funding and want to be accepted to Doctoral/PhD studies and to become a VDS PhaNuSpo member, please directly contact your potential supervisor of choice in order to discuss your proposed doctoral thesis topic and required procedure (e.g. in order to obtain a valid supervision agreement).
