The scholarships are aimed at excellent female scientists who are specifically preparing for a scientific career as a professor or who already fulfill the formal requirements for a professorship. The scholarship is intended for the performance of research work as preliminary work for a major project (e.g. habilitation) or a more extensive research project (e.g. the planning of a collaborative project). The call for proposals is open-topic. However, it is expected that the research projects will be carried out in cooperation with scientists from the University of Erfurt. The duration of the scholarships is up to 24 months. The funding includes a monthly scholarship of 2,000 euros and, if applicable, a family allowance. In addition, the scholarship includes career coaching and workshop offers as part of the "Academic Qualification" programme and support offers from the Equal Opportunity and Family Office as well as individual application coaching for the planned third-party funding project. Subject to capacity, a workspace can be provided at the University of Erfurt.
Detailed information on the call for proposals, the selection criteria and the application documents to be submitted can be found on the University of Erfurt website.
