Information for Junior Researchers
Promote Junior-Scientists and-Researchers

One of the tasks of the Behring Institute for Medical Research as stated in its statutes is to promote junior scientists and researchers. This covers everything from including students in research plans at the various Institutes to supporting doctoral candidates and granting post-doctoral fellowships or time-limited contracts to junior scientists and researchers. In addition to receiving financing, young scientists and researchers also receive substantial financial support from means provided by third parties, such as the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft or other foundations.

Outstandingly qualified university graduates working towards their Ph.D. within the framework of a three-year doctoral candidate contract make tremendous contributions to the ongoing research activities as the Behring Institute. Each year around 800 dissertations are completed in conjunction with the nearby universities. The average timeframe for doctoral work is three years, and the average age of the candidates is around 30.

After receiving his/her Ph.D., a junior scientist or researcher can carry out a research project at the Behring Institute as part of a post-doctoral fellowship. In addition, there are temporary employment possibilities for junior scientists and researchers that last a maximum of five years.
The Behring Institute for Medical Research has an extensive relationship with a broad range of international universities
