The University of Bremen, a mid-sized university with approximately 250 professorships and 20,000 students, offers a broad range of disciplines and competes internationally in top-level research. With an ambitious institutional strategy the university was successful in the German Excellence Initiative as one of eleven universities in Germany.
Funded from the Excellence Initiative and from its Central Research Development Fund, the University of Bremen invites postdoctoral researchers to apply for up to eleven Postdoctoral Positions with self-designed projects in the natural sciences and engineering as well as in the humanities and social sciences. In principle, the positions could be established in any research area and shall enable the fellows to conduct an independent research project. Nevertheless, the integration in an academic unit at the University of Bremen is fundamental for an application.
Applicants are expected to have a doctoral degree, a strong research background with a significant publication record and an excellent individual research project (advanced postdoctoral researchers) or project idea (early career postdoctoral researchers). Applications must be accompanied by a declaration of the Bremen University Professor who will host the project.
