Postdoctoral Research Scholarships

Postdoctoral Research Scholarships enable Charité-employed physicians and scientists to dedicate protected time to a clearly defined research project, e.g. to establish themselves in a new research institution or acquire novel methods.

The Charité awards research scholarships to postdoctoral researchers

  • who are Charité employees and
  • whose track record makes them eligible for an academic career and
  • who obtained their doctorate no longer then 10 years prior to application and
  • who intend to dedicate protected time to a research project of outstanding relevance.

Calls for "Forschungsstipendium I" are issued annually (Call Schedule) by the Academic Grants Committee (Kommission für Nachwuchsförderung). Scholarships are awarded in a competitive selection process.

Forschungsstipendium II may be funded from available funds. For details please see the scholarship information ("Merkblatt") available online [Charité INTRAnet only]. Please discuss with your PI or group leader first whether or not this funding option may be suitable for you.

Why are the calls and the scholarship information ("Merkblatt") only available in German ?

Please understand that the official language at the Charité is German, and thus used in conjunction with the Charité scholarship program, which contains a number of binding legal terms and phrases.

We recognize and encourage the international character of research done at the Charité. Thus, please feel free to submit your proposal and, if invited, to give your oral presentation in either German or English, whichever you feel more comfortable in. For oral presentations, we ask you to see to it that the laguage spoken matches that used on your slides.

We are looking forward to your application!
