Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds: PhD Fellowships

Programme Description

The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds offers doctoral fellowships to outstanding junior scientists who want to conduct an ambitious doctoral project in the field of basic biomedical research at an internationally leading laboratory. The financing comprehends a monthly stipend plus a country-dependent premium, and a fixed monthly amount for minor project-related costs. The fellowships are initially awarded for 2 years with the option to extend for up to 18 months. Moreover, participation in international scientific conferences and practice-oriented training courses is supported. Beside the financial support fellows receive personal support, participate in seminars where they discuss their research projects with other fellows, and attend communication trainings designed especially for the needs of scientists.

Target Group

Outstanding European junior scientists who want to do research worldwide, and non-European scientists wishing to do research in Europe. Applicants must have obtained their first university entrance qualification (secondary school leaving certificate, A-levels, or entrance test for first university studies after finishing school) within 8 years (96 months) before the application deadline.

Academic Requirements

Natural scientists should have obtained their last university degree (BSc, diploma, MSc or equivalent) before starting their doctorate.
Please apply when you are starting your doctoral project or have just started, preliminary results are not expected. If you started your project more than 6 months before the deadline, you are no longer eligible to apply.
