The Research Academy Leipzig is the central service institution at Leipzig University for the promotion of junior researchers.
The Research Academy informs, qualifies, promotes and connects doctoral and postdoctoral researchers of Leipzig University. It supports as well the faculties and professors in the promotion of junior researchers.
All structured doctoral programmes at the university are assigned to one of three Graduate Centres of the Research Academy: Mathematics/Computer Science and Natural Sciences, Life Sciences, or Humanities and Social Sciences. The Postdoc programme is aimed at guiding young researchers on their path to professional independence in their chosen field. It addresses the specific challenges that postdocs face as they prepare for a career in academia or transition to the non-university labour market.
