Attract, train, and retain – under this motto,
DAAD addresses postdocs of all nationalities, who
see their future career in Germany, but who first
wish to spend some time researching abroad.

During their research stay, postdocs receive regular consultation with the German host institution which ensures the best possible preparation for the reintegration into Germany. DAAD information and guidance measures foster network building and provide valuable support in career planning.

Higher education institutions gain access to an attractive instrument for the recruitment of promising up-andcoming
young scientists. The 18 month DAAD support opens a window of
opportunity during which long-term funding possibilities and, together with the fellowship holder, new research areas and international cooperation can be developed.

The next application deadline is May 15th, 2017 for fellowships beginning on or after January 1st, 2018. Click here for more information on details of the program and the application process.
