Sofja Kovalevskaja Award – Become a research group leader in Germany

€ 1.65 million for young researchers from all disciplines

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is now calling for applications for the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award, one of the most valuable academic awards in Germany. With funding of up to € 1.65 million, it creates unique opportunities for excellent researchers to conduct their own research in Germany: award winners are invited to spend five years working at the institute of their choice and setting up their own research groups – independently and virtually free of bureaucracy.
Scientists and scholars of all disciplines from abroad who have completed their doctorates within the last six years are eligible to apply. The award targets outstanding talent and a creative approach to research.

The Humboldt Foundation actively promotes equal opportunities and therefore particularly welcomes applications from women researchers.

The closing date for applications is 31 July 2018. More information:
