Joachim Herz Foundation: Add-on Fellowships for Interdisciplinary Life Science

Who is the funding aimed at?

The funding is aimed at PhD students and postdocs working on interdisciplinary research questions at the interfaces between life sciences and physics, computer science, mathematics, engineering and related research fields. For example, biologists can immerse themselves in mathematics and modelers in the life sciences.

What does the promotion look like?

With the Add-on Fellowship, postdocs and doctoral students receive financial support of up to 12,500 euros over a period of two years. The funding can be used flexibly and individually.

For example, for:

  • Participation in research stays, conference visits, further training or events.
  • Acquisition of special tools (e.g. hardware or software)
  • Data acquisition or collection
  • Science communication activities
  • Participation in fellowship meetings

PhD students and postdocs who are employed at a university or non-profit research institution in Germany or whose research is otherwise funded there (e.g. via a full scholarship) are eligible to apply.

Application deadline: June 4, 2024
