December 2013, the China Scholarship Council (CSC) and Freie Universität Berlin (FUB) have signed an agreement to establish a postdoctoral research program, which provides opportunities and scholarships for high-qualified young Chinese scholars to conduct postdoctoral research at FUB. This program aims at supporting and providing postdocs with international research experience and integrating them into the university’s research networks.
Freie Universtät Berlin offers a list with open postdoctoral research positions only available for Chinese PhD degree holders graduated from a Chinese university or research institution.
Starting in summer 2016, each postdoctoral researcher will be funded by the CSC at first for 12 months. If both parties - Chinese postdoc and German research group leader – agree, there is a possibility to apply to the CSC for the extension of a second year research stay which is funded by the German side.
The information brochure of the FUB – CSC Postdoctoral Research Program is available online.
