Financial support


Assistant professors without tenure, associated professors, lecturers I, and assistant lectures with tenure track can apply for 65 personal points per year for junior research assistants. The standing committee for research and postgraduate researchers grants the points twice a year.


The committee grants a maximum of 4 personal points for defined and finite projects that will be carried out by junior research assistants:

  • Preparations and follow-ups for conferences, research, publications etc.
  • Load removal during teaching, e. g. for tests in courses with many students.

There are unfortunately no grants for third party funded projects.

The committee prefers applications from persons who have no junior research assistant in their budget.

Each person can apply once per scheduled deadline = twice a year. The committee only grants second measures if enough personal points are left.



You just have to fill in the e-form. Please explain the project and why you need the personal points.

Deadlines: November 15th (for the first half of the following year); May 15th (for the second half of the year).
