Initiatives & networking

The Graduate Academy supports individual initiatives and networking for young scholars. At the moment, there are three programmes for postdocs: support for interdisciplinary research groups or research networks, support for interdisciplinary events and promotion of interdisciplinary group publications. All programmes should support interdisciplinary cooperation and the exchange of ideas between researchers in different subject areas. In addition, there is visible engagement of young scholars.

If you already have an idea for which you need financial assistance, please contact Dr. Hanna Kauhaus. But you can also be inspired by our currently funded projects. For an overview of these projects, click here.

Support of interdisciplinary work groups and research networks

The Graduate Academy supports the formation of interdisciplinary work groups and research networks of doctoral candidates and postdocs at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. If you want to work on scientific topics together and carry out projects with other young researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds, you can receive support from the Graduate Academy: For example, financial support (up to 1.500€ per year for guest speakers, student research assistants, printing costs etc.) and preferred use of rooms in the House for Young Researchers "Zur Rosen".

The condition for receiving a promotion is that the work groups and reasearch networks meet on a regular basis, that they predominantly consist of doctoral candidates and postdocs and that they address interdisciplinary scientific or science policy topics. Applications can be submitted at any time.

Further information about promotion and application can be found in the announcement.

Support of interdisciplinary events

The Graduate Academy supports PhD students and postdocs at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena in the organization and implementation of interdisciplinary scientific or science policy events. If you want to organise a course of lectures together with doctoral candidates and postdocs of other subject areas at FSU in order to exchange information on scientific topics across disciplinary borders, you can receive support from the Graduate Academy: For example, financial support (i.e. for guest lecturers, student research assistants, promotion material etc. up to 1,500€) and preferred use of rooms in the House for Young Researchers "Zur Rosen".
The condition for receiving promotion is that the organizers group consists of doctoral candidates or postdocs and is comprised interdisciplinary. A long-term benefit of the event should be identifiable. Further information about promotion and application can be found in the announcement.

Applications may be submitted any time.

Promotion of interdisciplinary group publications

The Graduate Academy supports doctoral candidates and postdocs of FSU with interdisciplinary group publications (monographs, anthologies, compendiums, conference proceedings etc.). Printing cost subsidies of 1.200 Euro maximum can be given for these publications. They must be written or edited by a team of two or more doctoral candidates and/or postdocs of FSU from different disciplinary backgrounds.

The application for a printing cost subsidy ought to contain a brief introduction of the applicants, an outline of the content of the publication including the table of contents of the planned book, a motivational letter and if possible a cost estimate of the publishing house. Applications can be submitted continuously (processing time is roughly 4-6 weeks).
