Helmholtz Calls for Applications
Look here to find an overview of current calls for applications which are coordinated by the Helmholtz Head Office. Most of the Helmholtz Calls for Applications are in German. Please see our German site.
Helmholtz International Fellow Award
Nominations can be submitted anytime by all member institutions of the Helmholtz Association. Current note: the next selection meeting will take place on 2 December 2014, Deadline: 21 October 2014
Cooperation with the world's best researchers is a key objective of the Helmholtz Association's international activities. To this end, the organisation has established the Helmholtz International Fellow Award, which targets outstanding senior scientists and research managers based outside Germany who have excelled in fields relevant to the Helmholtz Association, including science management at large international research institutions.
Helmholtz Postdoc Programme
Call open until 19 May 2014.
Talented young academics who have completed a promising doctoral thesis can take advantage of a new Helmholtz Association programme designed to help them further develop their scientific excellence effectively.
Young Investigators Groups - Networking with Universities
The call for 2013 is closed. In 2014 there will be no call.
One element of the Helmholtz strategy for junior researchers is the establishment of independent Young Investigators Groups. Top junior scientists are granted independence early on, with good conditions for research and secure career prospects ('tenure track') based on proven scientific achievements.
Helmholtz Work Placement Programme
The next call takes place in 2015.
The Helmholtz Work Placement Programme offers young leaders in science and administrative or technical experts working at Helmholtz Centres a chance to spend several months at one or more other institutions, expanding on and developing their skills.
