www.uni-bremen.de/en/post-doc

Funded from the University's own Central Research Development Fund (CRDF) as 
well as from the Marie Curie COFUND fellowship program, the University of 
Bremen invites postdoctoral researchers (m/f) in the natural sciences, 
engineering, social sciences and humanities to apply for one of

13 Postdoctoral Fellowships A32/13

Early career postdoctoral researchers (m/f) (at most one year after having 
received their doctorate) are invited to apply for a temporary position for up 
to two years. Fellows (m/f) will be enabled to develop an independent research 
project and to write an application for subsequent third-party funding.

Advanced postdoctoral researchers (m/f) (one to four years after having 
received their doctorate) are offered positions for up to four years to conduct 
independent research.

International postdoctoral researchers (m/f) (at most two years after having 
received their doctorate) are encouraged to apply for a two-year BREMEN TRAC ?? 
incoming COFUND Fellowship to develop and implement an independent research 
project. Applicants (m/f) can be of any nationality but at the time of 
application, they must not have resided or carried out their main activity 
(work, studies, etc.) in Germany for more than 12 months in the 3 years 
immediately prior to the call deadline.

All fellows (m/f) can freely choose their research topic, but have to 
demonstrate that their project fruitfully connects with one of the 
University??s research areas. The University of Bremen offers an academic 
environment ensuring that all fellows (m/f) will avail themselves of a broad 
range of support measures testifying to Bremen??s reputation as a talent 
incubator.

Postdoctoral fellows (m/f) will receive a competitive salary and a generous 
budget for costs directly incurred by the project. Being an equal-opportunity 
employer, the University awards at least half of the positions to women.

Applications must be submitted online by 1 April 2013.

Applications from female candidates, international applications and 
applications of academics (m/f) with a migration background are explicitly 
welcome. Disabled persons (m/f) with the same professional and personal 
qualifications will be given preference.
