Junior Research Groups at the HZDR

Helmholtz Young Investigators Groups

With the Helmholtz Young Investigators Groups(1), the Helmholtz Association fosters the early academic independence of excellent young researchers and offers them secure career prospects.The young scientists receive up to €300,000 in funding per year for five years, which allows them to set up and lead their own research group. Currently, there are the following Helmholtz Young Investigators Groups working at the HZDR:


HZDR's Junior Research Groups

At the HZDR, qualified young postdocs have the opportunity to become head of a young investigators’ group with an own budget at their disposal. The groups are expected to finish their work within five years, with evaluations after three and five years conducted by a commission of HZDR scientists. Currently, there are the the following groups:


Young Investigators Group funded by the DFG (Emmy Noether Program)
