Einstein Doctoral Programme 2017−2019  

Postdoctoral stipends 2017–2018

Measure 2
Transition from the doctorate into the postdoctoral phase, or: securing a postdoctoral career


Aim: to give those particularly promising M&B junior researchers (both early and more experienced postdocs) most likely to embark on a long-term scientific career an opportunity to apply for postdoctoral positions and/or procure their own funding by applying for third-party funding (e.g., DFG postdoctoral grants, DFG own position, A.-von-Humboldt-Stiftung, Boehringer-Ingelheim, VW Freigeist ...) while being funded. Successful candidates will receive a full postdoctoral stipend.

To be eligible you will have to be ...

  • either an alumnus or an alumna of the M&B doctoral program (with completed M&B certificate and completed disputation/defense),
  • and/or a member of the M&B postdoctoral program (at point of application).
