Young Scientists Mentoring Programme 2024/25 – APPLY NOW!

Early Career Researchers of the University of Klagenfurt have the opportunity to apply for funding within the scope of the Young Scientists Mentoring Programme 2024/2025 up to and including May 13, 2024.

The Young Scientists Mentoring Programme (YSMP) financially supports one-year mentoring partnerships between early career researchers of the University of Klagenfurt and internationally recognised scholars from foreign universities (or research institutions) as well as any associated research stays. The focus lies on advancing one’s research project, acquiring knowledge concerning structures, processes and the rules of the game within the sphere of international science, and personal career development. Early career researchers are integrated into the respective scientific community at an early stage, resulting in new contacts and cooperation opportunities.

Since 2016, the YSMP has offered more than 70 doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers of the University of Klagenfurt the opportunity to conduct their research under the guidance of mentors from the Free University of Berlin, King’s College London, University of Liverpool, University of California Los Angeles, Johns Hopkins University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Cornell University, University of Toronto, University of British Columbia, and many other renowned universities and research institutions.

Maximum amount of funding: € 3,500

Eligible applicants : Klagenfurt doctoral candidates (primary affiliation) and postdoctoral researchers employed at the University of Klagenfurt whose research project has reached an advanced stage
