Freigeist Fellowships for International Researchers in Germany, 2017

Freigeist Fellowships for International Researchers in Germany, 2017

Volkswagen Foundation is offering fellowship for international young researchers in all disciplines. Ten to fifteen fellowships for researchers will be awarded per year.The Freigeist funding initiative provides an opportunity for outstandingly qualified, creative and independent early career researchers to conduct their own research. It aims to encourage exceptional research personalities to embark on visionary, risk-taking research projects at the intersections between established fields of research.

The ‘Freigeist’ initiative builds upon the previous funding scheme for junior research groups and the Dilthey- and Schumpeter Fellowships which were terminated recently.

Their doctorate must have been obtained not longer than five years previously (with regard to the date of the defense relative to the deadline of the initiative).

Course Level: The fellowship is available for pursuing research programme at the university or research institution in Germany.

Study Subject(s): The ‘Freigeist’ scheme is deliberately open to all disciplines and topics.

Scholarship Award: Ten to fifteen Fellowships will be awarded per year. The initial funding period is five years; depending on the field of research and career experience, projects in a total amount of up to 1,000,000 Euro can be applied for:

  • The Fellow’s position (salary scale TV-L 14, comparable to similar junior research group leaders)
  • Positions for scientific personnel (doctoral students, PostDocs)
  • Non-personnel costs relevant to the project (e. g. consumables, travel expenses, equipment)
  • Important:
  • The Foundations does not grant any overheads.
  • In case the maximum amount of funding has not been fully taken up with the initial application, additional funds (so called modules) can be applied for during the course of the Fellowship to provide flexible support (e. g. for personnel, resources, sojourns abroad, cooperation measures, translations, workshops, stays at institutions representing other research fields). Applications for these modules should be submitted – if possible – within the context of annual reporting on the funded project.
  • A second funding period of up to three years may be provided. This requires a positive evaluation (by the Foundation), generally at the end of the fourth year, and a clear perspective for a permanent position for the Fellow at the host institution. The maximum funding for this second period amounts up to 400,000 Euro.

Scholarship can be taken in Germany

Eligibility: Anyone can apply who identifies with the goals of a ‘Freigeist’ Fellowship and whose proposed research project fits in with the aims pursued by the Freigeist initiative. Candidates must, however, conform to the following conditions:

  • Their doctorate must have been obtained not longer than five years previously (with regard to the date of the defense relative to the deadline of the initiative).
  • The Fellowship must from the outset be integrated within a university or an extra-mural research institution in Germany.
  • Candidates must already have changed their academic environment and moved to a new location – at the latest when starting the Fellowship. A return to the working context of the doctorate will only be accepted under exceptional circumstances.
  • A previously completed research sojourn abroad, at the latest integrated in the proposed research project.

Nationality: The funding scheme is open to early-stage researchers of all nationalities.

College Admission Requirement

Entrance Requirement: Their doctorate must have been obtained not longer than five years previously (with regard to the date of the defense relative to the deadline of the initiative).

Test Requirement: No

English Language Requirements: Applicants from outside the home country will often need to meet specific English language/other language requirements in order to be able to study there.

International Fellowship

How to Apply: Applications must be submitted online via the Electronic Application System of the Volkswagen Foundation. Instructions are found online. At the end of this “Information for Applicants” there is a checklist for documents to be submitted with their application.

PhD Studentship: Engineering Ultra high power Plasmonic Sources for 6th Generation (6G) Terahertz Mobile Communications

  •  Wednesday, August 16, 2017
  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
 Project Description
While the 5th Generation of mobile communications (5G) are currently being standardised by the industry it is expected that 6th Generation (6G) mobile communication networks will be required to support Tbps data rates. The only feasible way to achieve this is to use up to one thousand times or more of the spectrum that is being allocated for 5G. This is available in the so called Terahertz frequencies and the most fundamental challenge in the use of this spectrum is our current inability to achieve output powers from terahertz sources which make them suitable for 6G mobile communications. A global race is therefore currently ongoing internationally to research and engineer disruptive nano-scale technologies to produce novel Terahertz sources.One of the most promising lines of research is the use of plasmonic sources to generate electromagnetic waves in the terahertz frequency range. The typical plasma frequencies of most materials are in the optical range, however, photonic man-made nano-structures can be made with tunable plasmon frequency.

The aim of this project is to perform: a rigorous study of the state-of-the-art in terahertz radiation sources, research into synthetic graphene based nano-structures, to undertake the design and validation of such sources, experimentation (in collaborations with nanoGUNE) of the developed terahertz sources to validate theoretical and computational findings, and to move research forward in actual fabrication and future applications.

Specific Requirements:
• 1st Degree (and preferably MSc) in electrical engineering or physics with proven affinity for mathematical modelling and complex simulations/scientific computing.
• Proven experience with complex simulation codes using C, C++
• Familiarity with high performance computing (desirable).
• Excellent scientific problem solving skills.

Please apply through the post-graduate application system of the University of Sussex (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/apply) and clearly state the title of the studentship on your application.

Contact for informal enquiries and a full project description: Prof Maziar Nekovee, http://www.sussex.ac.uk/profiles/410738

Funding Notes

The Scholarship includes a three year stipend at a standard rate (currently £14,553 per annum) and, in addition, fees at the UK/EU rate. Since the scholarship only covers fees at the UK/EU rate any overseas applicants are kindly requested to state in their application how they propose to cover the difference between UK/EU and overseas fees

PhD position in Combinatorial Chemistry: the development of peptide macrocycle therapeutics using phage display and other combinatorial methods

PhD position in Combinatorial Chemistry: the development of peptide macrocycle therapeutics using phage display and other combinatorial methods

Project Description

A PhD position is available in the group of Prof. Christian Heinis at the EPFL in Lausanne (http://isic.epfl.ch/lppt). The primary focus of the research group is the development of peptide macrocycle therapeutics using phage display and other combinatorial methods.The goal of the PhD project is to develop peptide macrocycles to challenging protein targets to which no small molecule ligands could be generated to date. The PhD student will develop strategies to synthesize and screen large combinatorial libraries of macrocycles. The student will apply the methods to generate ligands to important therapeutic targets such as TNFa, IL-17 and PD-1. The techniques used in the project include chemical reaction development, automated peptide synthesis, high-throughput screening, characterization of ligands and biological evaluation.

Applicants need to be highly motivated and able to lead a project independently. They should have an education in chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology or a related subject. Entrance date: July 2017 — June 2018

To apply for the positions, please send a letter of motivation, a CV and a list of references to Prof. Christian Heinis ().

Funding Notes

The PhD project is fully funded. Annual salary: Around 50,000 Euro
