DFG Prospects Series: The Walter Benjamin-Programme

The Walter Benjamin Program is a great funding source for early-career postdocs.


Germany’s largest independent research funding organisation offers funding opportunities for all career stages between doctorate and professorship. Join our online talk and get to know the DFG and its funding portfolio for postdocs in Germany. We will give you a quick overview about the Walter Benjamin, the Emmy Noether and the Heisenberg Programme, as well as the Individual Research Grant with a temporary position for principal investigators. We will also provide advice on how to prepare your proposal and what happens once you submit it to the DFG.
