Successful candidates will be invited to attend a Selection Symposium. The next Selection Symposium will be held in Bonn in February 2023. The format for the 3-day symposium involves:
- Panel interviews – interviews with members of the Selection Committee where candidates give a presentation on a prior research project
- Individual meetings – individual interviews with mentoring Principal Investigators (PIs) who have PhD positions available in their labs
- Meeting current IMPRS PhD students
The Selection Committee decides on eligibility for admission to the IMPRS for Brain & Behavior program and will announce decisions by email shortly after the meeting. The positions must start no later than October 2023.
Important: Acceptance into our graduate school is based upon (1) the decision of the Selection Committee that an applicant is qualified for admission, (2) a successful match with an IMPRS mentoring PI, and (3) meeting the matriculation requirements of the University of Bonn.
