Dear applicants, we have received over 130 applications, these have been ranked by all PIs. Presently a selection (about a third) of applicants are being interviewed by Skype. This procedure needs more time than originally planned, but if you have not yet been contacted by a PI, you are unlikely to be selected to stay in the process. The results for who will be invited to Jena will be finalised by the end of this month. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best regards from Susanne Erland and the PI-team.
