American Friends of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AFAvH) is the professional partner of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) in the United States. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation of Germany promotes academic cooperation between excellent scientists and scholars from abroad and from Germany.
Location - Washington DC
In providing Humboldt Research Fellowships for postdoctoral researchers, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation enables highly-qualified scientists and scholars, who do not currently work or reside in Germany and who are just embarking on their academic careers and who completed their doctorates less than four years ago, to spend extended periods of research (6–24 months) in Germany. Scientists and scholars from all disciplines and countries may apply.
The research outline is carried out in cooperation with academic hosts at research institutions in Germany. Applicants choose their own topic of research and their academic host in Germany. Details of the research outline including information on the intended duration of the fellowship must be agreed with the intended host before applying. Short-term visits for study and training purposes or for attending conferences are not eligible for sponsorship.
The fellowship is worth 2,650 EUR per month. This includes a mobility lump sum and a contribution towards health and liability insurance. Information about additional benefits can be found on the program website.
Nominations can only be submitted by established researchers employed at a university or another research institution in Germany. Applications are then evaluated on a rolling basis. For further details about the program, please visit www.humboldt-foundation.de/web/humboldt-fellowship-postdoc.html.
