  • Severely disabled applicants will be prioritised in the case of equal professional and personal qualifications. Female researchers will be preferred in the case of equal qualifications with male applicants in order to reduce the under- representation of female researchers employed at the institute, unless the personal suitability of a male competitor is higher. Female researchers are therefore strongly recommended to apply.
