Postdoctoral phase

An overview of various internal and external funding opportunities for post-doctoral researchers can be found here.

Scientists on their way to becoming professors who are interested in setting up their own junior research group at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences can apply for start-up funding via the programme budget of the Presidential Board.

For scientifically active physicians, there has been a structured three-year further training programme since 2017 in the form of the Clinician Scientist Programme.

For non-medical scientists with clinical interests, there is the Medical Scientist Programme.

Funding for scientifically interested doctors at all career levels is also possible to a lesser extent (20% of working time for a maximum of 3 years) within the framework of internal faculty research funding.
