Outgoing LMU Research Fellowships

The Outgoing LMU Research Fellowships are directed at outstanding junior researchers in all fields of research who are about to complete their doctorate at LMU, or have received a doctoral degree at LMU within the last twelve months. The Fellowships are designed to promote the career development of early-career postdoctoral researchers by fostering their mobility and supporting them in developing their academic profile.

As part of your project, you will undertake an initial 12-month research stay at an academic partner organization in a country outside of the European Union and return to LMU to complete your project. Your application must be supported by a professor from LMU who will act as your mentor for the entire duration of the Fellowship. You will be provided with a workplace within one of our Faculties and may also become involved in teaching. As a member of the Young Center, you will also be associated with the Center for Advanced Studies.
