Our mission: Connecting highly qualified international early career researchers to Freiburg scientists!

The Freiburg Rising Stars Academy is your door opener to the University of Freiburg. We are welcoming early career scientists from the fields of Materials Science, Chemistry, Biology, Genetics, Informatics, Physics, Engineering, Microscopy, Medicine, and related interdisciplinary fields to apply as Rising Stars. These topics reflect the University of Freiburg’s strength in the two Research Profile Fields participating in Freiburg Rising Stars Academy: Biological Signalling Studies and Functional and Bioinspired Materials.

The call for applications has been closed.
If you want to be informed about future calls, follow us on twitter or LinkedIn!

This is what awaits our Rising Stars:

  • International experience
  • Top-level research collaboration
  • Opportunity to build and enhance professional networks
  • Access to excellent research infrastructure  
  • Travel stipends to Freiburg, and more…

The Rising Stars will get their foot in the door with their potential dream team: They start on a virtual level to collaborate with the Freiburg teams, work with them on research projects, gain access to top-level research infrastructure, develop new ideas, get to know team members, gain international experience – and maybe even meet your future supervisor. Should a Rising Star be more advanced in his or her career, a Group Leader or even Tenure Track Position could be awaiting in Freiburg: The Freiburg Rising Stars Academy aims to lay the foundation.
