Joachim Herz Foundation

Add-on Fellowships for Interdisciplinary Life Science. Application deadline is June 7, 2020.


30 Fellowships for PhD Students and Postdocs

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 fellowships enable interdisciplinary research and qualification (e.g. stays at a research lab and participation in conferences), specialized equipment and tools (laptops, software, etc.), participation in events of the Joachim Herz Foundation and fellowship meetings. 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.
