Second round of the Pre-Doc Awards started

08.04.2019

Twenty joint projects of postdoctoral and postgraduates will be supported in 2019. The kick-off event took place on March 25 at Villa Tillmanns.

The Pre-Doc Award is intended to open the way for pre-doctoral candidates to an scholarship and at the same time support postdocs in gaining support experience. The Pre-Doc Award is considered an innovative instrument for the promotion of young scientists at Leipzig University, with which innovative research can also be stimulated.

Following the successful testing of the Pre-Doc Award in 2017/18, the Rectorate decided to continue the programme for an initial period of three years. The selection process for the submitted projects was completed at the beginning of 2019. The 20 selected project tandems presented their projects at the kick-off event on 25 March in the presence of the Rector and Vice-Rector for Research and Young Researchers. With the support of the university, they will be given the opportunity to expand their project outlines of research applications that can be submitted to third-party funding agencies and foundations and ultimately ensure the implementation of a doctoral project.
