** THE 4TH CALL FOR APPLICATIONS IS OPEN UNTIL 5TH JANUARY 2017 **
Between 2013 and 2018 the International Post-Doc Initiative (IPODI) of the Technische Universität Berlin awards 21+5 two-year fellowships to international female researchers in 3+1 internationally open calls. IPODI is part of an initiative (Wissenschaftlerinnen an die Spitze) that aims at increasing the number of women in leadership positions. IPODI addresses outstanding female researchers regardless of their nationality or age and is open to applications from all fields of research represented at the TU Berlin.
IPODI has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 600209 (Marie Curie Co-funding of Regional, National, and International Programmes). Due to the great success of the programme an additional fourth call for applications was published in October 2016.
IPODI is mentioned as a good practice example for the internationalization of research at German universities in the following publication by the German Rector’s Conference: HRK (Hrsg.): Auf internationale Erfolge aufbauen. Beispiele guter Internationalisierungspraxis an deutschen Hochschulen. Bonn, 2014 (download (PDF, 368,0 KB)).
