Candidates will be selected via an open, transparent and merit-based procedure. Selected candidates will sign an employment contract, will be hosted in an attractive research environment and will benefit from a shared supervision and mentoring process formally inscribed in the Doctoral Agreement and the individualized Personal Career Development Plan.
