Leibniz Junior Research Groups
The programme is aimed at postdoctoral researchers with an excellent track record who are keen to take on a professorship or similar academic role. As leaders of a Leibniz Junior Research Group, they are given the opportunity to pursue their own research projects and establish themselves in their respective fields.
Researchers from anywhere in the world who completed their doctorate no more than five years ago are eligible to apply.
The researchers funded in this programme are brought together for networking and training events in the Best Minds network.
