Promotion of junior scientists at the DDZ

Home About us Promotion of young researchers

Highly qualified young academics are an important factor for sustainably securing research skills, innovative ability and academic training in Germany.

The DDZ attaches particular importance to the promotion and further development of young academics and offers support for junior scientists. Their early scientific independence is an aim of the DDZ.

From the beginning, excellent young researchers at DDZ are provided with the necessary framework conditions for independent scientific work and research. Supervision and coaching is provided by experienced DDZ scientists in cooperation with the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. The aim is to support and promote young scientists professionally and at a high level, even in the postdoctoral phase, in their development into research personalities.

The DDZ supports the scientists to systematically advance their careers through publications, research proposals and international networking. The network of the Leibniz Association as well as cooperation with other research institutes, universities and third-party funders complement the wide range of offers. Taking into account personal needs and projects, the young scientists are promoted at the DDZ. The ideas about professional development are individually coordinated.
