Teaching assignments for X-Student Research Groups for summer semester 2021
With the X-Student Research Groups the Berlin University Alliance is supporting research teams made up of junior researchers and students. The aim is to involve students in current research projects of partner institutions and enable them to participate in top-level research at an early stage of their studies.
The X-Student Research Groups are organized in the form of research seminars and usually run over the course of a semester. This gives junior researchers the opportunity to transfer their own research into teaching and to gather initial experience in managing research groups.
What does the research funding look like?
In order to run an X-Student Research Group, the junior researchers receive a contract for teaching assignment covering two semester hours per week. This teaching assignment runs over the course of one semester with the option of extending beyond this period into a second semester. On top of that, candidates can apply for research-relevant material or travel funds up to a maximum of 750 euro. The Berlin University Alliance sponsors up to 16 X-Student Research Groups per call for proposals.
Who can apply?
Junior researchers from the four partner institutions of the Berlin University Alliance: Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Applicants can include doctoral candidates, postdocs, and junior professors from all disciplines who are interested in conducting joint research with students.
