CliSAP successfully finished in 2018. Climate research continues in the Cluster of Excellence "CLICCS".

CliSAP awards fellowship for the return to climate science


If you had to interrupt your research for a longer period—perhaps to take care of children or relatives—you may find it difficult to regain a foothold in academia. To improve your chances, the CliSAP cluster of excellence has started the second call for application for its return-to-research fellowship. The application deadline is 30 June.

Fellowship holders cen use this year to apply for funding for a longer-term research post.

Successful candidates will receive a fellowship according to the criteria for postdoctoral fellowships of the German Research Association for one year (1.750 euro per month, allowance for direct project costs and if applicable child allowance). Fellowship holders can use this year to apply for funding for a longer-term research post. Applications are open to all climate scientists, prior CliSAP participation is not necessary. But you are only eligible to apply if a professor or group leader from a CliSAP institution consents to supervise you throughout your scholarship year.

If you are interested, please submit your application in writing to the CliSAP/CEN office. For questions about the scholarship, please contact Equal Opportunity Coordinator Nicolli Povijac. The scholarship has its origins in the Gender Action Plan developed by the cluster of excellence to improve equal opportunity.
