The DAAD is accepting applications for the „Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience“ (PRIME) programme.
The programme supports postdoctoral researchers of all nationalities and funds a research stay of 18 months.

A 12-month research stay abroad is followed by a 6-month research stay at a self-selected university (or university-related research institution) in Germany. The fellowship covers the entire 18-month period. The country of residence for the first 12 months can be any country outside Germany, but countries where applicants have spent more than 12 months in the three years prior to the application deadline are not eligible. Applicants are expected to take up a longer-term professional activity in Germany at the end of the fellowship.

Application Deadline: 31 August 2023

Selection: February 2024
