The requirement for admission to HBIGS is a university degree from an internationally accredited university that would allow the applicant to be admitted as a PhD student in the Biosciences at Heidelberg University according to the rules set by the Faculty.
- After eligibility and qualification has been checked (this might include a pre-interview with the applicant) the application files will be sent to the respective group leaders for further evaluation.
- PhD candidates who are eligible to be unconditionally accepted as PhD student by the Faculty of Biosciences are, in general, also eligible to become a member of HBIGS without further assessment.
- Applicants who are NOT eligible to be unconditionally accepted as PhD student according to the rules set by the Faculty have to pass a Qualifying Exam (“Kenntnisstandprüfung”). The Qualifying Exam consists of a 25 minute panel interview conducted by three principal investigators of the HBIGS Faculty. During the panel interviews, the candidates will give a 5-7 minute oral presentation of their past, current, or future research project (“chalk talk”). The oral presentation is followed by a question and answer session. In addition there will be a written GRE-like test of 2 hours. The test covers a broad range of topics in Molecular & Cellular Biology, Biochemistry and General Biology from standard text books like Alberts et al., Stryer et al. etc. Applicants with an educational background not directly related to the biosciences are offered the opportunity to also choose questions from a different subject, such as physics, chemistry or computer science.
- Applicants who are shortlisted, but not yet accepted by an HBIGS faculty member will be invited to Heidelberg upon the principal investigator´s request. They will be given the opportunity to meet with the principal investigators they have applied to. These candidates will take the Qualifying Exam during their stay, if requested by the Faculty of Biosciences or the principal investigator.
