Young Researcher Grant
The Young Researcher Grant is to be awarded to high-potential, aspiring candidates who recently completed their doctorate and are looking to pursue a career in academia. The grant provides funding for an 11 month short-term research project. Since the Young Researcher Grant is not designed as a full post-doc position, it rather offers suitable candidates an opportunity to acquire funding for a path into a post-doctoral position. Besides their own short-term research project the young researchers will take on certain responsibilities associated with a scientific position. Thus, they are involved in the supervising process of a doctoral student from a related scientific field who is a participant of the LHIDP. In close collaboration with the supervising professor, they will be working directly with the doctoral student. Moreover, also in collaboration with a professor involved in the project, they will be in charge of organizing the doctoral colloquia in the discipline where there are situated.
The current Young Researcher Grant (April 2019 - February 2020) is held by Tinatin Dvalishvili, PhD.
