About the TUM Global Postdoc Fellowship

The TUM Global Postdoc Fellowship is a funding opportunity for external postdoctoral scientists who are currently residing abroad and would like to start their research at TUM. For 24 months, fellows are supported by TUM to diversivy their research profile at a TUM department and to initiate new research projects together with TUM scientists.

Researchers who have completed their doctorate a maximum of three years ago or who will complete their doctorate within the next 12 months and reside outside of Germany at the time of application are eligible to apply. The application requires the support of a host at TUM. Here, the Research Opportunities Week offers an excellent opportunity to learn about the fellowship and other funding opportunities as well as to exchange ideas with potential hosts.

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.

If you want to be informed about future calls, please register for our newsletter.
