Promoting young researchers is a key goal of the DFG and it is, therefore, also an important review criterion in assessing Collaborative Research Centres. The main aim of promoting young researchers is to provide young scientists and academics with the opportunity early on to carry out research as independently and autonomously as possible. One special characteristic of the programme is the close integration of young researchers into a scientific network with the appropriate equipment and administrative structures. Doctoral and postdoctoral researchers can achieve additional qualifications through working in CRC projects. As research assistants in CRC projects, they contribute to the CRC?s success. They are closely integrated into the projects and have access to the entire project infrastructure. The university in question may also offer advanced opportunities for the structured training of doctoral researchers, for example within the framework of a Research Training Group, integrated Research Training Group (see below), graduate school or other institution.The CRC or CRC project leader in question is responsible for announcing and appointing project staff. Applications may not be submitted directly to the DFG’s Head Office.
-Young German researchers of all disciplines who have completed their academic qualifications (doctorate)
-Young international researchers of all disciplines who have completed their scientific training (doctorate)
* provided they have been resident in Germany for several years and meanwhile have their centre of life in Germany (fellowships available for research abroad or in Germany)
* otherwise, proposals can only be submitted for research fellowships in Germany.
* In both cases, international researchers will be required to state that they wish to continue to do their research in Germany in the future.
***Proposals may be submitted at any time.***
