The Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard Trust offers financial support to promote female phd-students with children in experimental and natural sciences research. The goal is to raise the number of women in German top research positions.
The selected women receive money, which is to be used to lower the amount of time they spent on household tasks.
Monthly sums (usually between 200€ and 400€) help with costs of additional childcare services, household help or financing of a dishwasher or other electrical and technical household aids.
Phd-students and post-doc students of experimental natural sciences or medicine can apply. The support is first restricted to one year, but can be extended upon request to last another year.
Please mind the application deadlines published on the trust’s website!
For the sponsored women a yearly meeting is organised in which all have to take part and introduce their research work. It is also a place of exchange and networking of all participants.
Funding can be obtained for a re-entry into research or the completion of a research project. The research must take place at a Rhineland-palatine university and must end with a PhD-degree or a professorial position.
