As part of an internal initiative to value synergies inside the consortium, iDiv and the three universities offered 7 doctoral and 8 postdoctoral positions in the field of integrative biodiversity research. Application deadline was scheduled for January 01, 2017. Candidates that successfully applied to these positions were invited for an interview having the format of the joint recruitment symposium. The idea behind the symposium was to select the best doctoral and postdoctoral candidates by crossing options, create an early partnership feeling and promote the qualities of iDiv.
The symposium was scheduled for two days, with the first day being open to all iDiv employees and iDiv members and the second being reserved for the project leaders and the candidates only.
Date: 27-28 February 2017
Venue: iDiv, Leipzig
