"The GOETHE INTERNATIONAL POSTDOC (GO-IN) PROGRAMME will comprise 20 postdoc fellowships which will be hosted in one of seven key research areas at Goethe University. The programme focuses on incoming mobility and addresses junior researchers from all nationalities who have been awarded a doctoral degree or an equivalent qualification not earlier than four years before the start of the postdoctoral research grant being applied for. The fellowships will last 12-24 months according to the research project the fellow plans to execute at Goethe University. For the time of the fellowship the fellows will receive an employment contract according to the conditions of the labour agreement of Goethe University. This will cover social security and payments of social benefits such as a contribution to pension funds and health insurance. The programme emphasizes equal opportunities and strongly encourages the application of junior scientists who want to resume their academic career which has been interrupted because of familial reasons. The programme runs an open, merit-based competition for the applying fellows and is founded on international peer-review.
Initially, the GO-IN PROGRAMME focuses on seven key research areas of the university which are selected based on their capacities and international recognition. Fellows can choose the topic and supervisor for their research project freely from these seven topics.
The programme provides added value for both, the recruited postdocs and Goethe University: the postdocs will have the opportunity to gain essential international experience during a crucial stage of their career and research at Goethe University benefits from scientists at their most creative stage of their academic development."
