If you decide to apply, by far the most important document to include is your motivation letter. It should explain your interest and motivation – why this topic, why this position, and given the job description, what would you want to work on? We encourage expressions of interest coming from a unique perspective. Don’t just submit your CV but tell us how your background fits with the position of your choice and how your plans fit with the aims of the position.
