Helmholtz Distinguished Professorship – funding to recruit top-level international female scientists (W3)
Scientific management positions are the defining element of any research institution. As joint appointments with universities, they are also an important link between Helmholtz, non-university research organizations, and its university partners. Within the framework of the Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation, the Helmholtz Association is intensifying its efforts to attract excellent female scientists from abroad to these positions. Together with its funding bodies, it is continuing its successful recruitment initiative of recent years under the new “Helmholtz Distinguished Professorship” program.
