Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Junior Research Groups
In order to promote outstanding research, JMU has launched the Excellent Ideas programme in each of its Faculties, offering junior researchers the opportunity to kick-start their academic careers in an esteemed research environment. Junior researchers, who have already gained experience in an international environment and have made a contribution to the international research community in their field while in a postdoctoral position, will intensify their research activities and take over more responsibility in the context of a dynamic junior research group.
For an initial period of up to 5 years, JMU provides support for a total of 13 junior research groups across the whole range of disciplines covered by the University. For this program, the university has identified cutting-edge fields of research in all of its faculties. Junior researchers will contribute to the program with their own innovative approach to research in one of these fields.
