Each IK4 Centre will manage the application and signing process for its own offers.
Applicants may register for 1 or more processes, up to a maximum of 3, indicating their order of preference. This choice will be used to configure the applications in each selection process. In the event that a candidate is turned down for an offer that they have indicated as their first choice, they will be considered for another offer which they have expressed as their second or third choice.
Applications may be submitted in any of the following languages: Spanish, Basque or English.
Applications can be submitted for each of the doctoral thesis offers proposed, provided that the offer is still open and the vacancy has not yet been filled.
Applications for IK4’s 2016 programme for the Promotion of Doctoral Talent must be submitted before 16 june and before the deadline stated in each offer.
Each Centre will be responsible for evaluating the applications it receives and will individually assess the suitability of each one in terms of the requirements specified, and on the basis of any other criteria it deems appropriate in order to guarantee the best candidate for the doctoral vacancy.
