Offer Description

The Young Researcher Program YRP@Graz welcomes applications for PhD positions.

Our expectations for our candidates:

— We look for early career researchers who are interested in an interdisciplinary exchange based on a solid university education in at least one subject of natural sciences or engineering.

— We aim for PhD candidates who would like to actively join our YRP@Graz initiative, helping to develop the tradition of the involved institutes.

— We look for excellent researchers who have the courage to cross scientific borders in a responsible way and to support our international societies with their research.

— We search for team players who aspire to continue their skill development as well as to support the research location Graz.
