Announcement regarding the application of resources of the funds for the promotion of convention trips and research stays for junior academics of the OVGU

The funds of the BMBF/ Professor Programme II for the promotion of female junior academics (doctorands and post-docs) for convention trips and research stays are purpose-specific provided via the Gender Equality Office of the OVGU (BfG). The focus lies, on the one hand, on the support of women who are on their way to get their professorship and, on the other hand, on the support of women on the career ladder in fields which lack the representation of female academic leading personalities (MINT-Fields).

Entitled and eligible for grants are doctorands and post-docs (up to 6 years post-doc; parenting time is considered with 2 years in addition for each child).
