Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience (P.R.I.M.E.)

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) provides support for international mobility for postdocs. Postdoctoral researchers of all nationalities, who see their long-term career in Germany, will be given the opportunity to combine the association with a German university with a research stay abroad. DAAD support measures and the possibility of continuous coordination with the German host institution shall ensure smooth re-integration following the research stay abroad. The support is for 18 months, of which the first 12 months should be spent abroad (period abroad) and the remaining six months in Germany (reintegration phase).

The next application call will be announced June 1, 2020. The application deadline is August 31, 2020 (DAAD Webseite). The earliest possible starting date (funding period) will be in May 1, 2021.
