Call for proposals of/with other universities
The University of Tübingen has close ties with several international research institutions. These offer a variety of funding schemes for researchers of all career levels. Furthermore some funding opportunities pertain exclusivly to the University of Tübingen and are thus offered in close cooperation with the University.
Tϋbingen - Durham Seedcorn Fund
Durham and Tϋbingen wish to develop a stronger bilateral relationship, building on their collaborations through the Matariki Network of Universities. The Tϋbingen-Durham Seedcorn Fund follows delegations hosted by each partner and an MoU first signed in 1989.
Through a competitive process, Durham and Tϋbingen universities will jointly advertise, select and fund projects in research and education. Successful research projects are expected to result in third-party funding applications.
2019/20 Fellowship Opportunity at Durham University’s Institute of Advanced Study
These fellowships offer the opportunity to spend three months working on collaborative projects with colleagues at Durham’s Institute for Advanced Study. As the university’s flagship research institute, the IAS aims to foster creative and collaborative interdisciplinary research, set tomorrow's agenda and leave a legacy of embedded research projects in Durham.
CSC - Tübingen PhD Program
The China Scholarship Council (CSC) and the University of Tübingen have established a PhD Program which supports Chinese nationals inside and outside of China wishing to carry out all or part of their PhD study in Tübingen.
The aims are to provide high quality research training to qualified students from Chinese universities and develope education and research collaborations between the University of Tübingen and Chinese universities and research institutions.
Two funding lines are promoted:
- Funding line A: Full time fellowships for postgraduate students who want to carry out their complete doctoral studies at the University of Tübingen. In this case the degree will be conferred by the University of Tübingen
- Funding Line B: Part time fellowships (sandwich model) for doctoral students who want to carry out their research and studies alternatively at their home universities and the University of Tübingen. They follow a schedule set in advance by both the Chinese supervisors and supervisors at the University of Tübingen. They may stay in Tübingen for 6-24 months. In this scheme the degree will be conferred by the Chinese home university.
Professors at the University of Tübingen who are interested in hosting a Chinese doctoral candidate in either funding line A or B can contact either Dr. Alexander Joost (eccs.md[at]gmail.com) or the Unit for International Research Cooperation and Research Strategies (international.research[at]uni-tuebingen.de)
The next call for applications will be opened in autumn.
