Lichtenberg Professorships 2017

Created on 05 December 2016

 

The Volkswagen Foundation‘s funding initiative “Lichtenberg Professorships” combines support for individual persons with the funding of institutions. By offering outstandingly qualified (young) researchers a tenure track option at a German university of their choice, grantees are given the opportunity to implement new teaching concepts and carry out independent long-term research in highly innovative areas at the interface of disciplines. For their part, the hosting universities benefit from being able to enhance their strategic and personnel planning.

The funding initiative is thematically open and aimed to an equal extent at disciplines in the humanities and social sciences as well as the natural and engineering sciences and medicine. The program is also open to researchers of all nationalities, the prerequisite being that the hosting institution is a university in Germany.

The funding initiative addresses two target groups:

W1 professorships as core target group:
- As a rule the doctorate should have been obtained within the past four years;
- A change of academic environment and location is required, at the latest upon appointment to the professorship;
- Only as an exception it is possible to return (with accordant statement and evidence of an academic independence) to the university where the PhD or the “habilitation” has been received;
- Publication record of independent research following the doctorate.

W2 professorships, preferably returnees or applicants from abroad
- As a rule the doctorate should have been obtained within the past seven years;
- Change of academic environment within the past five years, at the latest upon appointment to the professorship;
- Only as an exception it is possible to return (with accordant statement and evidence of an academic independence) to the university where the PhD or the “habilitation” has been received;
- Successful long-term research experience abroad;
- Research interests should not lie within the established core areas of the respective discipline.

Up to seven professorships are available – depending on the evaluation results of each call.

Initial funding over a period of five years is available in an amount of 0.8 to 1.5 million euros per professorship, in accordance with the specific requirements of the respective field and the individual applicant’s qualifications. The Foundation can be flexible concerning the professorship’s configuration and infrastructure.

Deadline: June 1, 2017
