The Joachim Herz Stiftung has launched a new fellowship program to foster interdisciplinary skills and support the careers of young scientists – integrated in the German science system – from various disciplines who conduct research in systems biology and neighboring fields. The “Add-on Fellowships for Interdisciplinary Science” do not cover living expenses. Instead, they allow PhD candidates and postdocs who are interested in further training in neighboring disciplines to attend conferences, finance research stays or undertake professional training needed in order to gain new insights into relevant research methods.
The fellowships enable interdisciplinary research and qualification (e.g. stays at a research lab and participation in conferences), initial requirements (PC, software, etc.), participation in events of the Joachim Herz Stiftung and fellowship meetings. Up to 20 young researchers will receive a maximum amount of € 12,000 per person to be spent over a period of two years. For fellows with children, additional funds are available to cover specific costs, e.g. related to childcare.will be provided with additional funds for the reconcilability of family and job.
Deadline: 1 September 2015
Fellowships start: December 2015
