All applications will be assessed by a panel of members of both universities and the MP–UBC–UTokyo Center for Quantum Materials.
A selection committee composed of several Principal Investigators participating in the program will prepare a shortlist of candidates who then will be invited for our annual selection symposium to be held in Vancouver and Stuttgart. The symposium will include short talks by the candidates as well as introductory talks by PIs about their universities, institutes and research groups.
The candidates further will be interviewed by several PIs, and can visit one or more research groups before or after the symposium depending on their and their potential supervisors’ interests. This format will no only give the prospective students an opportunity to present themselves, but also to learn about the diverse research activities offered by the Max Planck–UBC–UTokyo Center for Quantum Materials. Successful candidates will receive an offer to join the program.
