The call for applications is made exclusively for doctoral projects at the DZNE and is directed to doctoral students:

  1. at basic research in natural science subjects such as biology, biochemistry or chemistry, but also human and veterinary medicine, and
  2. at health services research e.g. in health services research, human medicine, psychology, epidemiology, public health, social sciences, sociology, statistics and biometrics.
    The scholarship consists of a basic amount of 2.300 € per month and a lump sum for material and travel expenses of 1.000 € per year.
    The scholarship is paid to the DZNE to finance a doctoral position (65% of level E13). If the monthly amount of funding by the Hans and Ilse Breuer Foundation is insufficient to cover the total costs of the doctoral position, the DZNE will cover the gap.
    The scholarship is granted for 36 months. The scholarship can be extended for a further 12 month upon justified application.

Applications must be submitted in English electronically to the Board of Trustees ( by 30 September 2023. The application should consist of a maximum of five pages and be written in Arial (font size 11, line spacing 1,5). The content of the application must be based on the following model.
