The two main criteria are the candidate’s proven record of academic excellence on the one hand, and BAGSS’ ability to ensure competent, research-led supervision on the other. Criteria applied in the selection procedure for the regular membership at BAGSS, i.e. for the admission to BAGSS, supervision and the award of scholarships, candidates must have the following:

  • A complete, formally correct application has been submitted by the advertised deadline in the required fashion
  • The statutory criteria for admission to doctoral studies at Bavarian universities are met
  • The research topic for the doctoral dissertation, as proposed in the application, matches the academic profile of BAGSS
  • At least one faculty member of BAGSS, who is eligible for the examination of doctoral theses, agrees to supervise the suggested dissertation topic
  • The complete application has been judged as excellent by a panel of academic assessors from the Graduate School in competition with other applications

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to take part in an interview. Interviews are scheduled to take place in Bamberg in December 2015. In exceptional cases, a video conference may suffice. All candidates will be informed about the final decision before the end of the year 2015
