Promoting young talentDoctorate at the HFA
Promoting young scientists
The aim of the Hector Fellow Academy is to promote young researchers in the Hector Fellows' environment. The HFA doctoral students are given the opportunity to benefit from the wealth of experience and outstanding expertise of their supervisor while building up a research network.
Every year, several doctoral positions are funded by the HFA. Master graduates from all over the world can apply with a very good degree. Ambitious young scientists have the opportunity to do their doctorate with a self-developed research project in the working group of a Hector Fellow.
For this, an innovative, self-developed research topic has to be submitted, which the young scientist works on within the framework of an up to four-year doctoral phase at the institute of the supervising Hector Fellow. It must be included in the application which Hector Fellow qualifies as a supervisor for your research idea.
Moreover, outstanding Master's graduates can also apply for advertised doctoral positions of a Hector Fellow. By becoming a member of the Hector Fellow Academy, the young scientists become part of an interdisciplinary network of top researchers.
