Seven postdoctoral fellowship for self-designed research projects, Bremen (Germany)

The University of Bremen invites - under the condition of job release - postdoctoral researchers to apply for seven Postdoctoral Fellowships with self-designed projects in the natural sciences and engineering as well as in the humanities and social sciences. In principle the positions could be established in any research area and shall enable the fellows to conduct an independent research project. Nevertheless, the integration in an academic unit at the University of Bremen is fundamental for an application.

The university offers two alternative postdoctoral fellowships: Recently graduated postdoctoral researchers (up to one year after having been awarded their doctorate) are invited to apply for a temporary position for up to two years. Fellows will be enabled to develop an independent research project and to write an application for third-party funding in their first year. The prolongation of the position for the second year depends on the submission of a funding proposal.

For advanced postdoctoral researchers (one to four years after having received their doctorate), the university offers a position for up to four years to conduct independent research. With only a minimum of teaching requirements, these positions enable younger researchers to carry out ambitious research projects within their international academic discipline.

Applications must be submitted online by 1 June 2011. For further information and the online application form, see http://www.uni-bremen.de/universitaet/die-uni-als-arbeitgeber/stellen0/job/ or contact Dr. Uta Brathauer at .
