The application process for doctoral grants (funded by the DFG or DAAD-GSSP) and doctoral memberships (Promotionsplätze) has started. You can download our call for applications for the academic year 2018/19 here. Please note that we can only accept applications that are submitted via our online application platform.
We will not advertise any postdoctoral positions (i.e. holders of a PhD) for the academic year 2018-19. The application process for the DRS Dahlem Postdoc Fellowships program is now closed.
The following documents will have to be included in the online application. You will find all relevant details on the specificities (length, file size, etc,) of the documents listed below after registering on our application platform. We therefore kindly ask you to refrain from inquiries on application documents before accessing the online application form.
You can revise your application before submitting the complete application dossier and hence complete the application process in several steps.

Deadline for the upload of reference letters is February 15, 2018.
