As a postdoc at TU Berlin, you have the possibility to apply for grants to attend conventions and conferences. Assistance is also provided by the IPODI scholarship program, an initiative designed specifically for female scholars. Postdocs can also apply for mobility funding from external agencies such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
TU Berlin is a cosmopolitan university located in the heart of Europe. We provide advice for international female academics looking to spend time as a visiting scholar at TU Berlin. You can find an overview of our advising services under "Advising and Support".
Advice and support concerning all aspects of your stay are also available from the International Scientific Cooperation section of the Department of International Affairs.
TU Berlin’s "IPODI" postdoc initiative has awarded 26 two-year fellowships to outstanding international female researchers. The program was co-financed by the European Union’s Marie Curie Program and was open to all academic chairs at TU Berlin. The program was targeted at outstanding female academics of all ages and nationalities. Applications were particularly welcome from female academics from outside of Germany, female academics looking to return to Germany to work, or those seeking a return to academia after a period in industry or time out from their academic careers (such as parental leave).
Co-funded by the Marie Curie Program of the European Union, the DAAD offers a PostDoc funding program. The so-called "Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience" (P.R.I.M.E) supports international mobility in the PostDoc phase through temporary positions. The funding runs for 18 months, the first 12 months you spend at an international university. Another six months at a German university.
This year's call is expected to be published in early June.
