Eligibility Criteria

In order to enter the selection process, applications have to meet the following criteria:

  • The applicants may have no more than ten years of research experience after obtaining the doctoral degree (PhD or equivalent). In exceptional cases, an extension of up to three years is possible. Researchers with diverse career paths are explicitly invited to apply for an IPODI fellowship. Applications from researchers with periods of international mobility, mobility between sectors or non-academic mobility are especially welcome. IPODI perceives such career “breaks” as additional qualifications with respect to social and organizational skills and considers them within the eligibility criteria and selection process. Candidates with children are automatically granted an extension of the eligibility period of two years per child. The maximum extension to be granted is three years. Applicants are also able to present further circumstances that may lead to an extension of their eligibility period for application (e.g. care responsibilities, chronic disease, illness).
  • The applicants may not have resided or carried out their main activity in Germany for more than 12 months in the three years prior to the call deadline (Marie Curie Mobility Rule).
  • The research proposal fits into one of the fields of research represented in one of the TU Berlin’s seven faculties and is supported by a cooperating professor at TU Berlin.
  • The application has to be submitted in complete form by the deadline announced in the call for applications.
  • Applications have to be submitted in English.
