Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)

KiNSIS Funds for Lab Exchange

To increase the mobility and the visibility of postdoctoral researchers and to strengthen their network within the scientific community the priority research area KiNSIS funds four travel grants per year, each worth 2000 €. The funds is aimed at postdoctoral researchers with temporal contract and W1 professors without tenure track. The money has to be spent within one year. Afterwards, a final report in form of a short presentation at a KiNSIS retreat or a general assembly of KiNSIS on scientific achievements during this stay should be given.

Dates, Proponents and Eligibility:

  • There is one call per year. The deadline for applications is 1stof March. The decision will be announced on 1stof April.
  • Eligible are postdocs working within the group of a KiNSIS member with temporal contract or W1 professors without tenure track in the research area of KiNSIS.
  • 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:

A proposal must be formatted (in one document):

  • Language: English
  • A maximum of 2 pages, including figures, but excluding references, staffing, work plan etc
  • A4  page  format,  font:  Arial,  11pt,  line  spacing:  1.5, border top/left/right/bottom  2.5/  2.5/  2.5/ 2.0cm
  • CV (max. 2 pages)
  • Letter of intention of institution abroad
     


Goals and Criteria:

Proposals should address how the funding should affect the following points:

  • Improvethe proponent’s independent research profile
  • Extend national & international scientific network & collaborations
  • Increase scientific visibility within the peer-group by contributing to national and international conferences/workshops
  • Increase international scientific working experience
  • Generate peer-reviewed international publications
  • Widen the spectra of future fields of scientific interest and collaboration partners


At least threeof six points must be addressed. Based on the criteria listed above, the KiNSIS board will decide about funding the project.

The deadline for applications is March 1st. Please send your proposals to Dr.-Ing. Julia Jedtberg jfr@tf.uni-kiel.de.

Previous Funding

2020:

Dr. Judith Golda (Experimental Plasma Physics)

Judith GoldaNew method for investigating plasma

Golda investigates plasmas - ionized gases, which among other things are used for the treatment of surfaces - using emission spectroscopy. With a new method, the physicist wants to observe the chemical processes at the interface between plasmas and surfaces "live". Important insights into its development should be gained during a research stay at the University of Minnesota, supervised by Professor Peter J. Bruggeman as an expert in atmospheric pressure plasmas. Among other benefits, a comprehensive understanding of the plasma processes could in future help to produce C02-neutral fuel.
