Vienna Biocenter requests letters of recommendation from two scientists who are familiar with your academic work and who can judge your potential as a PhD student.

Please forward the enclosed letters to the referees and ask them to send their letters of recommendation directly to the dean of the PhD Programme.

The student is responsible for obtaining the letters and should actively inquire with the respective referees whether the letters have been sent.

Please note that Vienna Biocenter will be unable to process your application without letters of recommendation.

These letters are therefore an essential part of your application, and it is your responsibility to ensure that the referees write to us before June 24.

Selection procedure and admission:

Complete applications will be reviewed by a selection committee consisting of group leaders of the Vienna Biocenter.

The short-listed candidates will receive invitations to visit the Vienna Biocenter for a five-day period of interviews and information exchange.

Travel expenses will be reimbursed, and free accommodation will be provided.

Offers of admission will be made to the successful candidates at the end of the interview period.
