We will gladly take time for you. If you are interested, please email the respective contact person to arrange a telephone or video call appointment. In personal appointments are also possible by arrangement. In order for us to prepare for the interview, please briefly state your request (e.g. desired doctoral subject, current occupation). If you have specific questions about your research project or your doctoral process (e.g. acceptance, language requirements, oral defense), it is best to contact your faculty's doctoral office directly. Please note that we cannot forward any application documents to suitable supervisors. Therefore, please do not send us any resumes or publication lists.
