Guest Program at the MPI for Evolutionary Biology
Stipends for PhD students
A PhD student may apply for a stipend lasting up to 6 months in order to attend a practical training course at the institute, or a teaching program offered by the IMPRS for Evolutionary Biology, or for transitional financing before starting a post-doctoral position.
Eligibility: Master’s degree or equivalent.
Application: Applications for training funding should name the specific course or program for which finance is sought. Applicants for transitional financing require the support of their supervisor.
A postdoc from outside Germany planning to conduct a specific research project at the Institute can obtain a transitional stipend lasting up to two years in order to prepare an application for independent funding, and to bridge the time until the result of that application is known.
Eligibility: recently obtained PhD (up to 1 year before proposed stipend start date).
Application: directly to the leader of the proposed host group.
Decisions on applications for the PhD and postdoc program will be taken by the guest program committee at the institute
A scientist from outside Germany can receive a stipend for conducting a collaborative project at the Institute, for attending a training course, or for a sabbatical visit.
Eligibility: must hold a position at a foreign University or research institution, and be able to return to this position at the end of the Institute visit.
Application: directly to the leader of the proposed host group, who can also decide about acceptance.
