Application and selection

The total number of course participants is limited to 70. The target audience is PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. We welcome applicants from different basic and medical science fields which have an interest in learning more about epigenomics and nuclear receptor signaling.  

Selection will be based on scientific excellence (publications, poster abstract, project outline), interest/motivation for participation (motivation letter, reasons why to participate, importance for the own project/future career). The presentation of a poster is mandatory for participation. Willingness to give a short talk will increase your chances to obtain a travel fellowship if you apply for that along with your registration. 

All members of the organization committee will be active in selecting the participants. We aim to ensure a wide geographical representation of all participants, consider gender balance and ethnic multiplicity and particularly encourage participants from scientifically often “under-represented” countries within and outside Europe to apply.
