Research Fellowships, Ludwig-Maximilians

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) will be awarding the 20 research fellowships as of 1 July, to candidates who have completed their doctoral studies in any field, having graduated no more than three years ago with outstanding results.

Applicants must present a research plan with the application, together with a support statement from a professor of LMU Munich.

This support statement must confirm that the applicant’s project shall be supported intellectually and infrastructurally (provision of laboratory space, workplace etc.).


The fellowships come with an attractive award (of up to € 60,000 per year).

For carrying out a research project at LMU Munich, an additional € 25,000 may be applied for as start-up funding, as well as up to € 10,000 per year as material and travel expenses.

Also, in the first two years following completion of their research stay, the fellows may be provided with up to € 5,000 for continuation of cooperative efforts with LMU Munich.


The fellowships are initially limited to two years. An extension of two years may be granted upon a positive academic evaluation.

LMU Munich is an equal opportunity employer committed to excellence through diversity and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Deadline: 15 April.
