Postdoc Newsletter – for external researchers.

TUM Global Postdoc Fellows receive a 24-months fellowship and are affiliated with a specific chair at TUM. In this way, TUM allows their fellows the freedom to sharpen their academic profile while providing the opportunity to initiate new research projects with TUM researchers.

The fellowship aims at external international and German scientists who are currently conducting research abroad. Researchers currently residing in Germany and working at institutions other than TUM are also eligible to apply. Applicants must have completed their PhD within the last three years or must finish their dissertation within the next 12 months. The support from a TUM host is mandatory for the application. The Research Opportunities Week is an excellent opportunity to get first-hand information on the fellowship program and other funding opportunities. Participants will also have the chance to network with potential hosts at the Career Opportunities Fair.

The TUM Global Postdoc Fellowship is open to all topics. Researchers are invited to apply with a project that matches the research of the chair/institute/lab of the respective host who supports the application.
