Humboldt Research Fellowship for Experienced Researchers
Submit an application if you are a researcher from abroad with above average qualifications, completed your doctorate less than twelve years ago, already have your own research profile and are working at least at the level of Assistant Professor or Junior Research Group Leader or have a record of several years of independent academic work. A Humboldt Research Fellowship for experienced researchers allows you to carry out long-term research (6-18 months) in Germany. Applicants choose their own topic of research and their academic host. The fellowship is flexible and can be divided up into as many as three stays within three years.
Scientists and scholars of all nationalities and disciplines may apply to the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation online at any time. The Humboldt Foundation grants approximately 500 Humboldt Research Fellowships for postdoctoral researchers and experienced researchers annually. Short-term study visits, participation in congresses and training courses cannot be financed.
Academics from developing and emerging countries may be eligible to apply for a Georg Forster Fellowship.
Due to the introduction of a new database system and high application rates we shall unfortunately need more time than usual to process your application for a fellowship/your nomination for an award. Therefore, at present, you must assume it will take up to ten months before you receive a decision. We are very sorry about this delay and sincerely hope that we shall be able to revert to the usual processing period of six months at the earliest opportunity.
