Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience, PRIME 2020/21, deadline: 31 Aug 2020

With funds from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the DAAD PRIME program funds temporary positions at German universities to support the international mobility of postdoctoral researchers.
Postdoctoral researchers who see their long-term career perspectives in Germany receive funding for a research stay abroad based on a temporary position at a German university.
In addition to the stay abroad, the funding also includes a mandatory return phase for subsequent reintegration into the German science system.

Who can apply?
Applicants with above-average qualifications from all faculties can apply. They must have completed their doctorate with very good results before the start of funding.
An application is possible regardless of nationality and current residency. However, depending on nationality

and place of residence, restrictions may apply when choosing the destination country for the stay abroad (see application requirements).
