Funding Programs for Junior Research Groups

 

Funding programs for junior research groups are typically targeted at outstanding postdocs with research experience whose doctorate has been completed a few years ago. As a rule, funding is provided for an entire group of junior researchers, including for project resources, for a period of five years. The program seeks to enable young scholars to conduct independent research early on in their careers.

 

The present web page provides an overview of selected externally funded junior research groups at RWTH Aachen.
