3 June 2020


University of Ljubljana is issuing a Call to tender for 102 young researcher candidates.
Candidates submit their application online; application deadline is 19 June 2020, 13:00 CEST.

In case of any questions please contact . 

Only candidates born in 1992 or later are eligible to apply; applications of older candidates will not be considered (see point 3 of the call to tender for details).

Important notification: When choosing the type of qualification, please be careful. If you have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree, you must not choose single-cycle Master's degree.


The candidates who have not yet enrolled in a doctoral degree study programme must also apply separately for the Call for enrolment into Doctoral degree programmes 2020/2021. Otherwise, even if they are selected as young researchers, University of Ljubljana will not enter into employment contract with them, because they will not be able to enrol in a doctoral study programme.
