Application portal opens on January 15, 2024
The application phase for doctoral positions at the Hector Fellow Academy is entering a new round. On January 15, 2024, the application portal will open, through which interested early career researchers can submit their application for their own doctoral project or apply for advertised doctoral positions with Hector Fellows or Hector RCD Awardees until March 31, 2024. The Hector Fellow Academy once again supports promising young researchers by awarding fully funded doctoral positions with their own research budget.
Hector Fellows are outstanding professors who have made significant contributions in STEM fields, medicine, and psychology. Each year, the Hector Fellow Academy also recognizes excellent young scientists between postdoc and professorship with the Hector RCD Award with the aim of promoting excellent scientific careers. In 2024, doctoral positions will be advertised in the following research groups:
- A. Stephen K. Hashmi (Chemistry)
- Peter Hegemann (Biology/Chemistry/Medicine)
- Jürg Leuthold (Physics/Engineering)
- Bernhard Schölkopf (Computer Science/Mathematics/Physics)
- Wolfgang Wernsdorfer (Physics/Chemistry)
- Eberhart Zrenner (Medicine/Biology)
The young scientists who successfully complete the application process will receive a position as a research associate for up to four years at the university of the supervising Hector Fellow or Hector RCD Awardee with a salary in line with the institute's standards. In addition to further training on management topics and coaching, the doctoral candidates themselves become part of the interdisciplinary network of top researchers.
