With Research Grants for Doctoral Candidates the DAAD offers young researchers who would like to spend a stay abroad during their doctorate a new, attractive funding instrument. The research stay abroad may last from one to 12 months and can be divided into several stays. This allows grantees to conduct research in several countries and at different host institutions. The highlight of this program: During the doctorate, two grants are even possible, which can last a total of 18 months.

Technische Universität Chemnitz is particularly committed to the needs of young academics intending to take a doctoral degree. The aim is to provide favourable conditions for the research of young academics, doctoral candidates and postdocs. Against this background, the Centre for Young Scientists was established in 2014.

The Centre for Young Scientists is a cross-faculty coordination and service institution. Services range from from offering help during the doctoral and postdoctoral phase to in-service trainings, consultations and networking opportunities for young academics. Moreover, the institution committed itself to the sustainable promotion and enhancement of a higher education infrastructure accompanied by measures serving identity development. These include both sensitization and guidance of university members as well as a new impetus towards comprehensive standards, e.g. principles of good scientific practice.

The services at the Centre for Young Scientists complement the education and consultation offers of the faculties.

Range of services:

  • Optimal framework conditions
  • Interdisciplinary trainings
  • Provision of comprehensive information related to doctorate
  • Consultation on cross-faculty matters during the doctoral and postdoc phase<
