Short Term Fellowships

For a transitional period of 3 up to 6 months graduate students can apply for a CRC/TRR 247 short term fellowship.
This short term fellowship allows graduate students to start scientific work within the context of the CRC/TRR 247 before joining it as official graduate students. 
The specialisation and specific requirements to the applicants are given in the single projects. For more information to the individual projects take a look at: Area A, Area B, and Area C.
Candidates are selected on the basis of excellent performance in their studies and their motivation. As all teaching will be in English applicants should have good English knowledge. 
The fellowship is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and is thought to cover living expenses in Germany. In addition it will cover a confined amount of material costs. The Fellowship will be paid monthly.
 
How to apply
Only PIs can submit complete applications (Application Form including CV and degree certificates) via E-Mail as a single pdf-file to the coordinator Dr. Franziska Günther.
On the basis of these documents we will select potential candidates.
The selection criteria are:
 • Thematically fitting to CRC/TRR 247
 • Excellent performance in their studies, motivation
 • (Very) Good English knowledge
 • Support by supervisor
 • Only awarded if supervisor is assuring a possible follow-up financial support!
 
Good to know
After the short term fellowship there is the ability to apply for a PhD position within the CRC (job offers). The duration of the PhD position will be up to three years. The structured programme supports each graduate student individually to perform excellent scientific work on their own PhD project and offers lecture series, workshops, symposia, lab-rotations and practical courses which complements the PhD education (for more information see graduate school).
