Call for Applications “Humboldt Post-Doc Fellowships”

Dear Langscape members,

I´d like to forward information on an interesting opportunity for support of postdoctoral researchers and projects to you:

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin currently offers support and funding of Post-Doc Fellowships for outstanding (young) researchers from Germany (outside HU) and abroad. In general, projects from all disciplines are welcome and are merely asked to be compatible with the HU research portfolio. The funding scheme allows for various networking opportunities.

We´d like to direct this offer especially at researchers whose research and projects are closely connected to the Langscape network.

If you can think of possible candidates you would like to propose, please contact Stephan Breidbach or Lutz Küster as Langscape Co-ordinators accordingly.

You find more detailed information on the funding profile as well as requirements and deadlines for application etc. here:

Kind regards,

Claudia Schmidt
