Long- and Short-Term Fellowships for Non-Tenured Research Group Leaders

Schaller fellowships are a funding opportunity available to non-tenured group leaders working on biomedically relevant research in Heidelberg who fulfill the requirements for the appointment to professorships. The awardee’s appointment as Professor or similar tenured position should be imminent and the fellowship typically serves a bridging function. Long-term fellowships are awarded for up to three years with a salary compatible with the corresponding TV-L tariff classification. Short-Term fellowships are awarded for six to nine months, and in exceptional cases for up to one year.
