Young Academics

The University of Siegen considers the creation of excellent career conditions for the qualification and profiling of young academics an important matter. The University of Siegen offers an optimal environment for the development of individual academic career paths at all career levels, starting with master’s students, doctoral students and postdocs to junior professorships. The House of Young Talents was set up to provide intensive and interdisciplinary advice to young researchers. On their website you will find further information, in particular on the topics of doctoral programmes and funding.

In addition to support and counseling offers in the qualification levels of master’s students and doctoral students, postdocs in particular are to be shown and paved the way to scientific independence as early as possible. Young scientists with a doctorate and with visible potential are increasingly funded with the aim of supporting them in their development into research personalities and to optimally accompany them on their further career path. The independent implementation of research projects and the acquisition of third-party funds is an important component here. The Research Funding department supports and coaches young scientists in a targeted and individual manner with the initial application and, together with the House of Young Talents, offers workshops and information events on third-party funding.
