When working as a Postdoc at a chair, early-career researchers do not always have the time required to focus on their own research. This is due to the many tasks and responsibilities they have in the day-to-day reality of a university. At this crucial stage of their careers, however, it is essential to continue developing a research profile and identity – especially when aiming for a professorship or another academic leadership position.
The “Career Development Awards” is a new funding scheme under the banner of the Berlin University Alliance, created specifically for the postdoctoral researchers of its member institutions. Applicants from all academic disciplines are eligible to apply. Awardees are granted paid academic leave, allowing them to focus completely on a research project of their choosing.
