On the central pages for junior academics at Paderborn University you will find, among other things, information on funding opportunities. Below we have compiled some information that is particularly relevant for postdocs within the academic fields of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
- Postdoc grant by the Committee for Research and Junior Academics
The Committee for Research and Junior Academics awards postdoc grants for junior academics (start-up financing and a degree completion grant). The calls for tenders of each application round are made public via the Faculty of Arts and Humanities email distribution list, posters on campus, and via our newsletter.
- Support for female junior professors and postdocs through 0.5 academic staff positions
To support female junior professors and postdocs at Paderborn University in their research work, the Executive Board has set up a pool of academic staff positions within the framework of its Equal Opportunities Concept.
- Research Reserve and Committee
The Faculty of Arts and Humanities receives an annual Research Fund (Forschungsreserve), which is used in particular to provide financial support for research projects (small projects, starting aid) and travel expenses of scientific staff members, as well as to promote scholarships.
