A substantial part of the research at a university is carried out by young academics, these being doctoral candidates and postdocs. Twice a year, the Rectorate of Bielefeld University grants financial awards from the Bielefeld Young Researchers' Fund in order to support the work of young, highly qualified academics. The Bielefeld Young Researchers' Fund is committed to the following objectives:
I) Supporting bridge periods between academic career stages
II) Supporting the self-dependence of young academics
III) Promoting funding acquisition by young academics
IV) Recruiting young academics both domestically and abroad
Students preparing for their doctoral phase, doctoral candidates in their final phase and postdocs can apply for the different measures from the Bielefeld Young Researchers' Fund. For this purpose, the Bielefeld Young Researchers' Fund is separated into two different funding lines with a total of five different measures.
This spring BiGSEM members enjoyed the fourth hiking tour. Starting point was Bielefeld University and final stop was the Pappelkrug.
