Helmholtz-DAAD Programme for Doctoral and Postdoctoral Students

The special programme jointly run by the Helmholtz Association and the DAAD 
is intended for highly-qualified foreign doctoral and postdoctoral students. 
Helmholtz-DAAD Fellowships offer excellent young scientists and researchers 
from all around the world the opportunity to do research at a Helmholtz 
Centre in Germany.

The Helmholtz Association is Germany's largest research organisation with an 
annual budget of around 2.2 billion euros and 24,000 staff concentrated in 
15 research centres. The Helmholtz Association works on solving the grand 
challenges which face society, science and industry and concentrates on 
researching systems of great complexity in the following six research 
  a.. Earth and Environment
  b.. Energy
  c.. Health
  d.. Key Technologies
  e.. Structure of Matter
  f.. Transport and Space
Helmholtz-DAAD Fellows carry out research in one of these fields and use the 
outstanding scientific infrastructure which the Helmholtz Centres maintain.

Helmholtz-DAAD Fellowships are awarded just once a year. The respective 
offer will be published usually in September under "Current Offer" on the 
homepages of the DAAD and the Helmholtz-Association. Please note that the 
number and subjects of the fellowships in the Research Fields offered by the 
Helmholtz Centres might differ from call to call for application.
