Rights of appeal
During the whole selection process the applicant may file an appeal against a notified decision not later than 15 days after being notified by clearly reporting the clear reason for the redress request. The GNeuS Management Office will check the appeal’s eligibility; for example, the appeal is not eligible in case the candidate fails to reply within the proper time limit on a notification that minor information is missing in the application. If the appeal is deemed eligible, the FZJ ombudsmen will decide on the appeal and has the right to contact the applicant if required. If the appeal is accepted, a new evaluation by independent experts will be performed. The GNeuS Management Office commits to manage each appeal within 4 weeks of its submission.
