Fellowships for young researchers

In 2012 the Joachim Herz Stiftung has been offering five three-year fellowships to outstanding young researchers at the PIER Helmholtz Graduate School.

The fellowships support highly qualified young researchers with a generous  monthly allowance and funding for basic equipment, research assignments, workshops/events and attendance at international conferences.
