German Scholars Organisation: Klaus Tschira Boost Fund 2022

Nov 15, 2021

The program addresses Postdoctoral Researchers who

  •     are employed at a higher education institution (university, Fachhochschule) or a non-university research institution,
  •     conduct research in one of the following areas: Biology, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Computer Science, Mathematics, Neurosciences or Physics,
  •     are not already funded by a junior research group program (e.g. Emmy Noether, ERC Starting Grant or others).


The objective is to give (young) researchers greater flexibility in shaping their career paths, accelerate their careers, and promote early independence. It is possible to apply for funding of up to € 80,000 for a period of up to two years. In principle, funding can be used for all types of costs; no more than 75 percent of the funds may be used to cover (parts of) the fellow’s own salary. In addition, fellows are eligible to become members of the alumni network AlumNode.
