The University of Bremen, a mid-sized University with approximately 270 professorships and 20,000 students, offers a broad range of disciplines and competes internationally in top-level research.
Funded by the University’s Central Research Development Fund (CRDF), the University of Bremen invites postdoctoral researchers to apply for eight Open Topic Postdoc Positions to pursue an independent research project for three years. The self-designed projects can be established in any research area. In order to ensure a fruitful academic exchange, the integration of the project in an academic unit at the University of Bremen is a prerequisite for an application.
The postdoctoral positions are open to
A) early-career postdocs up to two years after finishing their PhD (date of doctoral certificate).
B) advanced postdocs with the aim of a professorship. The PhD must not date back to less than two years before application deadline and not more than four years (date of doctoral certificate).
Successful applicants will be employed by the University (pay grade E 13 TV-L or up to E 14 TV-L for advanced researchers) and receive a yearly budget of 6,000 € for research activities. This is a temporary position, § 2 (1) of the Academic Fixed-Term Law contract (WissZeitVG) does apply. The University of Bremen is an equal opportunity employer. Thus, at least 50 percent of the positions will be offered to women.
We are looking for highly motivated researchers with an outstanding doctoral degree, a significant publication record, and an excellent research proposal. Applications must be accompanied by a letter of support from a professor of the University of Bremen selected as a host.
