No. The internal processes employed by the universities and the Max Planck, Helmholtz, Leibniz, and Fraunhofer institutions to identify candidates are not relevant to the Einstein Foundation. Candidates can also be identified through appointment or head-hunting processes that follow the rules and criteria of the host institutions (e.g. the special search process used by the Max Planck Society). We recommend obtaining sufficient agreement within the relevant bodies concerning a potential appointment so that if funding is approved, the appointment can go ahead without the need for further internal consultation.
