How to join yDiv
There are three possible ways of joining yDiv:
Apply for a PhD position at iDiv.
Check here for vacant positions. Please note that you can only apply for announced PhD positions.
Apply for admission into yDiv in case you have already started a PhD project in the field of biodiversity research.
Please start by discussing with your principal investigator (PI). You can apply for yDiv membership if your PI is an iDiv member.
Being part of yDiv gives you access to many opportunities but also implies the agreement of you, your PI, and additional supervisors to the regulations and statutes of our structured graduate programme as well as the supervision agreement.
To kick off the application process, please contact the coordination team at email@example.com for an admission form. Based on your written application, you will be invited to an admission symposium, where the yDiv board and other yDiv members evaluate your admission. Admission symposia are typically organized twice per year; please ask the coordination team for details.
Scholarship by the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU)
Apply for a scholarship by the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU) Stipendienprogramm and receive support by the yDiv graduate programme for your application.
This concerns potential doctoral researchers and their supervisors (preferably iDiv members) whose research interests are relevant to iDiv and the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU). iDiv can support potential doctoral researchers both seeking for a funding opportunity from the DBU Stipendienprogramm and wishing to take part in the structured graduate programme yDiv.
