Young Researchers Groups

At Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, young researchers receive funding from a variety of institutions:
DFG Emmy Noether Groups ...
ERC Starting Grants ...
Young academic grants of the Carl Zeiss-foundation ...

Emmy Noether Groups (DFG)

Within the framework of the Emmy Noether Program, several young academics are currently heading their own young researchers' groups and, in so doing, are not only exercising early scientific independence but are also gaining qualifications for faculty membership.

You will find more research projects at JGU funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) here.

ERC Starting Grants

The aim of an ERC Starting grant is the set-up or the consolidation of an independent excellent research team. Young researchers may profit from this funding projects as well as established scientists.
