Leibniz Young Investigator Grants

The aim of the funding line is the promotion of the careers of excellent postdocs. LUH supports them in acquiring their own research project and in gaining research and leadership experience in an excellent environment.

Another aim of the funding line is the support of the research of the existing clusters of excellence and excellence cluster initiatives at Leibniz University. Therefore, projects should preferably relate to the existing clusters (Hearing4All, QuantumFrontiers, PhoenixD and SE²A) or the cluster initiatives in the emerging research areas of knowledge graphs, science ethics and implant research. In addition, submissions in other thematically interesting topics are also possible.

The call for Leibniz Young Investigator Grants aims firstly at postdocs at LUH (up to four years after their doctorate) who wish to advance their research, for example with the support of a doctoral position (funding line A - local). Secondly, the call aims at international postdocs (up to four years after their doctorate) for whom the grant provides the opportunity to come to LUH (funding line B - global).

Funding line A - local

Only postdoctoral researchers of Leibniz University Hannover up to four years after their doctorate are eligible to apply for funding.
