Helmholtz Visiting Researcher Grant Opportunity: The Helmholtz Visiting Researcher Grant offers doctoral students and postdocs the opportunity to do a fully-funded short-term research stay at one of the 18 Helmholtz Centers.
The program is promoted by HIDA, the Helmholtz Information, and Data Science Academy.
The aim of the program is to enable new research collaborations, to foster knowledge exchange, and explore new or emerging research topics in the field of information and data sciences. The program addresses researchers in both academia and in industry whose research has a strong link to the (applied) information and data sciences. It offers researchers the opportunity to get to know the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.
HIDA is tasked to support the mission of the Helmholtz Association – solving the major challenges facing society, science and the economy by conducting top-level research in strategic programs within six research fields: Energy, Earth & Environment, Health, Aeronautics, Space and Transport, Matter, and Information.
Postdocs and doctoral students from (inter-)national research organizations and researchers from industry (Master’s degree with at least 3 years of research experience, or PhD).
If you are a postdoc at one of the Helmholtz centers and are interested in a research stay at another Helmholtz center.
You receive a research grant from the hosting Helmholtz center (2,860 EUR per month plus allowances).
- Step 1 Contact a research group at one of the 18 Helmholtz centers to discuss the possibility of a 1- to 3-month research stay.
- Step 2 You and the hosting Helmholtz center (e.g. head* of the corresponding research area or group) can apply for a Helmholtz Visiting Researcher Grant to financially support your stay.
- Step 3 Prepare for your stay and get inspired by the fascinating world of Helmholtz research!
