Helmholtz Young Investigator Groups – Call 2020

The Helmholtz Young Investigator Groups offer early scientific independence to international top talents. The funding generally amounts to at least € 300,000 p.a. for five years with an option of a permanent position in case of a positive evaluation.

The group leaders receive professional skills training by the Helmholtz Leadership Academy. Helmholtz Young Investigator Groups are generally established together with a German university partner. Most group leaders are given joint positions as professors during the funding period.
