    CRC 1411 Projects that you are most interested in

    Here you can inform us which CRC 1411 projects you are most interested in. Details of the projects can be found on the CRC 1411 website. Please be sure to explain the reasons for this choice in your letter of motivation!

    Your letter of motivation

    Please type or copy your letter of motivation (maximum 4000 characters including spaces) into the box below. You should address your letter of motivation to the principal investigator of the CRC 1411 project for which you are applying. In your letter you should justify, with reference to your academic background and work experience, your motivation and suitability for your projects of interest. This statement is critical for our first round screening process and applications lacking it or with insufficient justification (A simple "I am very interested in Project xy" is insufficient) are likely to be rejected. You may also comment on your suitability for further projects, where appropriate. Moreover, you should indicate, again with evidence from your portfolio, your aptitude for interdisciplinary work. *
