Letter of Motivation

Your motivational letter is more than a formal requirement. We indeed would like to know

  • why you want to get your PhD,
  • why you want to get your PhD in Zurich and
  • in what fields of research you are interested in.

The more information you give us, the better we can assess your application. We don't want to turn down a good application only because we do not know why a good candidate wants to get a PhD.
