After completion of each selection step (eligibility check; peer review; personal interview), rejected candidates may appeal. Appeals can only be filed in case of process-related shortcomings (eligibility checks, evaluation procedure, etc.). A review of the scientific decision or quality of the reviewers cannot be achieved by this. Appeals must be sent to the project manager in written form within one week after the rejection was received (taking into account postal delivery time in case of paper applications). The project manager will carefully examine each appeal, forward the result to the Selection Committee for final verification and will inform the appealing candidate about the result within one week.
