DAHLEM RESEARCH SCHOOL (DRS) is the strategic center for junior researchers and the Center for Research Strategy (CRS) promotes cutting-edge research at Freie Universität Berlin. Through the DAHLEM POSTDOC FELLOWSHIP Program, DRS and CRS provide funding for highly qualified postdoctoral fellows with at least six months of international research experience to conduct their own research within one of the university’s outstanding collaborative research projects. In addition, international research stays are supported in order to allow researchers to build up a full year of international research experience by the time they complete their DAHLEM POSTDOC FELLOWSHIP.
Fellows are given the opportunity to expand their academic profile by experiencing early independence combined with professional guidance. During their stay they are integrated into research groups and assigned a professor as scientific advisor.
As members of DAHLEM RESEARCH SCHOOL, Fellows benefit from a tailored qualification program and the opportunity to develop teaching and leadership skills. Furthermore, DAHLEM POSTDOC Fellows are supported in obtaining funding for follow-up research projects at Freie Universität Berlin.
