Advanced Talents are postdocs in the qualification period for future professorial appointments. At RWTH Aachen they include junior research group leaders, postdocs with awards and fellowships, and junior professors both with or without a tenure-track appointment. Our objective is to optimally support these advanced talents on their path to a permanent appointment.

A junior professorship serves as a career step for early career researchers to gain further scientific qualifications after having completed their doctoral studies and to prepare them for a lifetime professorship. RWTH Aachen offers outstanding researchers the opportunity to do research and teach at the university in an independent manner. Successfully completing a junior professorship fulfills the prerequisite for being appointed to a professorship.
