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

Returning to Climate Science: CliSAP now awarding scholarships


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 is financing up to two scholarships. The application deadline is 15 October 2015.

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

The Return-to-research-fellowship, worth €1,750 per month (plus supplementary child allowance), is awarded for one year. Fellowship holders should use this year to apply for funding for a longer-term research post. 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 in 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.
