Joachim Herz Foundation: Add-on Fellowships for Interdisciplinary Life Science [deadline 09 Jun 2021]

In 2015, the Joachim Herz Foundation launched a fellowship program to foster interdisciplinary skills and support the careers of young scientists from various disciplines. The fellowship addresses scientists who already have a position at or current basic funding from a German research institution and aim to answer biological research questions. The Add-on Fellowships for Interdisciplinary Life Science do not cover living expenses. Instead, they allow PhD candidates and postdocs who are interested in further training in related disciplines to attend conferences, conduct research stays or undertake professional training needed in order to gain new insights into relevant research methods.

The Add-on fellows will receive a maximum amount of € 12,500 per person to be spent over a period of two years. For fellows with children, additional funds are available to cover specific costs, e.g. related to childcare.
