Humboldt Research Fellowship Programme for Postdoctoral Researchers
In providing Humboldt Research Fellowships for postdoctoral researchers, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation enables highly-qualified scientists and scholars, who do not currently work or reside in Germany and who completed their doctorates less than four years ago, to spend extended periods of research (6–24 months) in Germany. Scientists and scholars from all disciplines and countries may apply.
The research outline is carried out in cooperation with academic hosts at research institutions in Germany. Applicants choose their own topic of research and academic host. Details of the research outline, including information on the intended duration of the fellowship, must be agreed with the intended host before applying.
The fellowship is worth 2,650 EUR per month. This includes a mobility lump sum and a contribution towards health and liability insurance. Information about additional benefits can be obtained from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation website below.
