The final selection will be done by internal Selection Committees, through interviews of the best 3 candidates for each position. The interviews will be performed either online (via Skype) or in person. At the interviews, the Commission will evaluate the candidates based on the following criteria:

  2. Professional profile: Weight - 30%
  3. Personal profile: Weight - 30%
  4. Knowledge about the PhD position and the university environment: Weight - 10%

The scoring in the interview will be given on a scale from 1 to 5, with 0.1 increments and the minimum threshold is 3.

The final scoring for each candidate will be given by:

  1. The evaluation report from the Evaluation Committees: Weight - 50%
  2. The individual scoring of the interviews: Weight - 50%
