Selection Committee

The Selection Committee is appointed by the Steering Committee and consists of up to six Faculty members (including the Director of MAINZ), the student representative, and the Coordinator of MAINZ. It is responsible for the selection of PhD students (evaluation meetings are held at least every two months) and ensures that high quality standards and excellence criteria of candidates are met. Additionally, the Selection Committee aims to uphold a well-balanced ratio between PhD students from Germany and PhD students from abroad. It also ensures the implementation of equal opportunities for young female and male researchers, as well as for researchers with special needs in the selection process.
