You are here: FRIAS People Fellows

Fellows

Fellowships are addressed to outstanding and well-established researchers from Freiburg (Internal Senior Fellows), from around the world (External Senior Fellows) and to promising junior researchers with experience abroad (Junior Fellows, minimum condition: PhD) in any of the scientific disciplines represented at the University of Freiburg.

FRIAS fellowships are awarded on the basis of competitive and performance-based selection procedures. The researchers’ scientific qualifications and the level of innovation and potential of the proposed project are the most important criteria in these peer-review procedures. Financially supported by FRIAS for three to twelve months, fellows enjoy the opportunity to advance their own research projects.
