Young Professors Programme (YPP)

The support programme for junior professors and junior research group leaders

Junior professors and junior research group leaders often find themselves in a challenging situation: they have achieved success early in their career and are now in positions of responsibility with management obligations. Producing outstanding research results while remaining actively involved in teaching, student supervision and university administration requires a diverse range of knowledge and skills.

The Young Professors Programme (YPP) is targeted at assistant professors (with and without tenure track) and junior research group leaders.

The programme helps early-career academics manage the myriad challenges of academic life and successfully take the next step on their career path. Click here for more information about the programme.
