Call for Applications
Freie Universität Berlin offers Postdoc Fellowships for 2017
DAHLEM RESEARCH SCHOOL (DRS) is the strategic center for junior researchers and the Center
for Research Strategy (CRS) promotes cutting-edge research at Freie Universität Berlin.
Through the DAHLEM POSTDOC FELLOWSHIP Program, DRS and CRS provide funding for highly
qualified postdoctoral fellows with at least six months of international research experience
to conduct their own research within one of the university’s outstanding collaborative research
projects. In addition, international research stays are supported in order to allow researchers
to build up a full year of international research experience by the time they complete their
DAHLEM POSTDOC FELLOWSHIP.
Fellows are given the opportunity to expand their academic profile by experiencing early independence combined with
professional guidance. During their stay they are integrated into research groups and assigned a professor as scientific advisor.
As members of DAHLEM RESEARCH SCHOOL, Fellows benefit from a tailored qualification program and the opportunity to develop
teaching and leadership skills. Furthermore, DAHLEM POSTDOC Fellows are supported in obtaining funding for follow-up research
projects at Freie Universität Berlin.
The call for positions in 2017 is subject to the confirmation of grant funding by the German Research Foundation.
