Once a year the Technical University of Munich (TUM) selects 50 young scientists from all over the world and invites them to the Research Opportunities Week (ROW) in Munich. During this week, the participants have the opportunity to visit different research facilities at TUM, to meet Professors of their disciplines, to inform themselves about possible postdoc funding opportunities in Germany and to create a scientific network.
The Postdoc Mobility Travel Grant covers accommodation and travel expenses and thus funds the stay in full. After the ROW, the participants get the exclusive chance to apply for the attractive TUM University Foundation Fellowship (TUFF) and to spend one year as a postdoc at TUM.
Participants of the Research Opportunities Week (ROW) at TUM have the exclusive opportunity to apply for the one year TUM University Foundation Fellowship (TUFF). Successful applicants receive a one-year funding by TUM and are integrated into a TUM institution of their research field. In this way, the TUM offers scholarship holders sufficient freedom to sharpen their research profile and to initiate new interdisciplinary research projects together with professors.
The next Research Opportunities Week will take place between 20-24 April 2020.
Deadline for applications: 31 October 2019.
