Support for early stage researchers

Sup­port for Early-Stage Re­search­ers Based roughly on the guidelines of the EU Com­mis­sion’s European Charter for Re­search­ers, early-stage re­search­ers are defined as re­search­ers in the first four or six years of their re­search activ­ity, up to the point when they ob­tain their PhD. In prac­tice, this cat­egory cov­ers WU’s teach­ing and re­search as­so­ci­ates and ti­er­-one re­search­ers. For this reason, our meas­ures for sup­port­ing early-stage re­search­ers fo­cus on fin­an­cial sup­port for the com­ple­tion of doc­toral theses and other types of fin­an­cial sup­port that are also avail­able to teach­ing and re­search as­so­ci­ates. 

For more in­form­a­tion on fund­ing op­por­tun­it­ies for early-stage re­search­ers, please see our PDF bro­chure „Fördermöglich­keiten für WU-Jung­forscher/innen“ (in Ger­man). The bro­chure is designed to give you a clear and struc­tured over­view of the many dif­fer­ent types of fin­an­cial sup­port and fund­ing op­por­tun­it­ies you can use for your first ven­tures into the world of re­search.
