In addition, the University of Bonn attaches great importance to the topic of career planning and design. In this regard, the PostDocPlus series offers funding and support.


DFG coaching for young researchers

The Faculty of Agriculture organizes so-called DFG-Coachings at regular intervals. Here, mainly scientific staff in the post-doc phase can find out what opportunities the German Research Foundation (DFG) offers young scientists to advance their own project ideas and, above all, how DFG third-party funding can be acquired successfully.

Using case studies, both funded and rejected proposals will be presented and discussed by the respective applicants. Further information is available directly from the junior researcher officer (contacts further down the page).

The Research Department of the University of Bonn also answers questions about research funding, from initial information about funding opportunities to the processing of third-party funded projects and the exploitation of results.
