Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)

KiNSIS Early Career Award

The priority research area KiNSIS funds one Early Career Award per year worth 5000 € for postdoctoral researchers with temporal contract and W1 professors without tenure track for innovative and interdisciplinary research, supporting scientific goals/topics of KiNSIS. The funds should be used to promote the grantee’s research career. They can be used for student assistants, travel costs, software or consumables but not for financing of one’s own position.

Dates, Proponents and Eligibility:

  • There is one call per year. The deadline for applications is 1st of March. The decision will be announced on 1st of April. The prize will be awarded during the Diels-Planck-Lecture.
  • Eligible are postdocs with temporal contract or W1 professors without tenure track in the research area of KiNSIS with at least three years of research experience after the doctorate.
  • The use of approved funds is linked to an existing employment or fellowship at Kiel University or at a partner institution.
  • Successful proponents cannot apply again for this specific kind of support.

Formal Details:

Candidates can be suggested by a KiNSIS member or make an application themselves. The application should include:

  • Language: English
  • 2 support letters of KiNSIS members
  • Short summary (maximum one A4 page) of research of the last 3 years
  • CV (max. 2 pages)

The decision will be based on an online-survey (according to the procedure of the Diels-Planck-Lecture) among the members of KiNSIS.

The deadline for applications is March 1st. Please send your proposals to Dr.-Ing. Julia Jedtberg
