We invite excellent scientists from all countries and at different career stages to apply for a research visit at IGB. We offer fellowships for PhD students, post docs and senior scientists for 6-24 months. These fellowships are designed to enable outstanding scientists to contribute to research at IGB and thus further their own scientific development or training. Scientists currently residing in Germany are not eligible to apply.

You would like to expand your research on freshwaters or inland fisheries? You are highly motivated to put your excellent research ideas into action? You are keen on working abroad with an interdisciplinary team of scientists dedicated to advance freshwater ecology, inland fisheries science or related research areas? And you are looking for unique facilities to develop new approaches to tackle the most important research questions for the future of our freshwaters?

Then we cordially invite you to apply for a research visit at IGB. With Berlin being an attractive science location, you will find stimulating working conditions, excellent infrastructure and open-minded colleagues with a wide range of backgrounds in freshwater ecology and inland fisheries. The working language at IGB is English.

About the IGB Fellowship Programme

Twice a year we offer fellowships to PhD students, postdocs and senior scientists for 6-24 months. IGB provides excellent laboratory and field facilities for interdisciplinary research, large-scale experimental facilities as well as long-term research programmes. Fellowships are offered in three funding lines:

Guest PhD Fellowships: for doctoral students currently carrying out a PhD project at another institution. These fellowships are meant to enable short-term research visits at IGB to PhD students enrolled in a PhD programme elsewhere; they do not cover a full three-year doctoral thesis.

Postdoc Fellowships: full support for postdoctoral researchers to carry out full-time research at IGB for up to two years

Senior Fellowships: for scientists who generally lead a research group at their home institution to obtain funding for an extended visit at IGB (e.g., during a sabbatical leave)

It is generally possible to split the granted number of months in more than one visiting period at IGB. Please discuss with your host if this option is suitable for your planned project.

Criteria and first contact

The type of fellowship applicable to your career stage depends on your qualifications at the intended starting date. Applicants must hold a Master degree or equivalent (PhD fellowships) or a doctoral degree (postdocs and senior scientists) in one of the research areas at IGB. Before submitting an application, please contact your potential host and develop a research programme in accordance with your host group. The following links may help to identify the best potential host to pursue your ideas.

  • Ecohydrology
  • Ecosystem Research
  • Experimental Limnology
  • Biology and Ecology of Fishes
  • Ecophysiology and Aquaculture
  • Analytical Chemistry and Biogeochemistry

Checklist for required documents

  • your CV, including a complete list of publications
  • certificates of your Master degree or equivalent, or of your doctoral degree, respectively
  • a letter indicating your research interests and experience (max. 1 page)
  • your proposed research programme at IGB (max. 1 page), including potential research host(s) and time line
  • two letters of recommendation to be (a) uploaded by the applicant to our application platform or (b) sent by the reference contact directly to Dr. Ina Severin (severin@igb-berlin.de, cc to co@igb-berlin.de)

Financial support

The fellowships provide resources to cover basic living expenses. They amount to 1,365 €/month at the doctoral level, 1,828 €/month at the postdoctoral level, and 2,600 €/month at the senior scientist level. In addition, some funds can be provided for consumables and travel allowances. The fellowships do not include health insurance, which is mandatory in Germany, nor contributions to pension schemes. Fellowships can normally only be granted if no other income is received during the fellowship period by employments elsewhere.
