Start-up Stipend for Postdoctoral Researchers
The BAGSS Start-up Stipend for Postdoctoral Researchers is awarded for twelve months with the option of a six-month extension, starting from 01 April 2024. In individual cases, the starting date may be up to three months after that if necessary. The stipend amounts to 2,500 EUR per month. In addition, grant recipients are provided with office space and necessary equipment at BAGSS.
During the initial twelve-month period, recipients are expected to develop an excellent project proposal and submit it to an external funding body, e.g. the German Research Foundation (DFG). The grant proposal must include funding for the applicant’s own position afterwards, e.g. via an Emmy Noether Junior Research Group (DFG), an ERC Starting Grant, or a Temporary Position for Principal Investigators (“Eigene Stelle”, DFG). The Start-up Stipend is automatically extended for six months if the proposal has been submitted to an external funding body within the initial funding period.
