The interested, dedicated and talented applicants should apply online by filling the application form and send the electronic copies of the required certificates and documents. The applicants meeting the first stage scores, will be asked for an online interview. Once they accepted, it will be arranged to be interviewed by the member of academics who found them capable to conduct the project under their supervision and the involved aspects fit to their scientific knowledge, interest and courage.  
The current PhD students may also apply for the position, because there might be a possibility to continue their education under the above scheme partially trimmed to fit to their host institution.
