Helmholtz Young Investigator Groups – Call 2019

The Helmholtz Young Investigator Groups offer early scientific independence to international top talents. The funding is generally at least € 300,000 p.a. for six years with an option for a permanent position in case of a positive evaluation. The group leaders receive professional skills training by the Helmholtz Management Academy and additional support measures. Helmholtz Young Investigator Groups are generally established together with a German university partner. Many group leaders are given joint positions as professors during their funding period.
