European and International Research Funding and Scholarships for Postdocs

For research funding from sources outside of Germany, the European Union plays a major role, as do various international sponsors.

1. European Research Funding Programs

  • Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships to promote cross-border mobility (European scholarships for researchers who are either coming to Europe or are pursuing their research in another European country; scholarships to fund reassignments of European-based researchers in countries outside of Europe).
  • Starting Grants or Consolidator Grants awarded by the European Research Council (ERC) to promote pioneering research by junior scholars who head their own research group.

Please be mindful of the respective application deadlines.
