  1. The admission requirements for doctoral studies are a second-cycle level degree, or completed course requirements of at least 240 ECTS credits or have an equivalent education from abroad or equivalent qualifications.
  2. Good command of the English language, both written and spoken, are key requirements.
  3. Candidates are expected to have very good knowledge of programming, especially for implementing efficient algorithms, and of mathematics and/or statistics.
  4. Important personal qualities are, besides creativity and a curious mind, the ability to work both independently and collaborate in a group, and internationally.

Application Procedure

A complete application should contain the following documents:

  1. A cover letter including a description of your research interests, your reasons to apply for the position, and your contact information
