The Research Academy Leipzig is the central institution at Leipzig University that is dedicated to the promotion and advancement of young scientists.
It provides multiple forms of support to doctoral researchers and postdocs that supplements that offered by their faculties. The Research Academy Leipzig is committed to promoting uniform standards and quality in doctoral education through its structured programmes, which have been recognised as best practice models. In addition, the Research Academy develops individualised, yet systematic qualification programmes that prepares young scientists to pursue careers in their chosen field once they leave the university. Promoting equal opportunity and gender equality is of utmost importance to the Research Academy, as is our commitment to supporting the Leipzig University’s strategic objective of internationalisation.
