Programmes for female postdocs and junior professors
Research periods at foreign research locations are a central component of a career in research. The Faculty of Engineering offers outstanding young women researchers the possibility to apply for a scholarship as a guest researcher abroad (international visiting scholarship).
The ARIADNETechNat mentoring program for postdoctoral researchers offers individual support for personal development and questions concerning career decisions. In addition to one-to-one mentoring, the program also includes a comprehensive workshop program.
The amount of funding for a short research stay abroad is determined by the committee of the women’s representatives at the Faculty of Engineering on a case by case basis, up to a maximum of €10,000.
Further information on applying can be found in the guideline for application.
The closing date for submitting your application is March 31, 2020.

It is generally up to the applicants themselves to find a suitable coach. However, the Centre for Continuing Education in University-Level Teaching (FBZHL) can help if necessary. Funding is available up to a maximum of €1,200 for up to 6 sessions.
