A significant part must have been produced after finishing the PhD degree.

  • Applicants must demonstrate the capacity to carry out independent research. An applicant is expected to have published sole-authored work and must document – through co-authorship declarations – substantial contributions to any co-authored publications.
  • In terms of evaluating the qualitative aspects of an applicant’s research competences, focus is on the publications submitted for assessment.
