Goal of the programme
Associate professors (Juniorprofessoren) and junior research group leaders find themselves in a challenging situation. They have achieved early academic success and must likewise assume positions of responsibility for themselves and others quite early in their career. Junior researchers require a wide range of knowledge and skills in order to continue producing outstanding research results as they get involved in teaching, supervising and administrative activities.
The Young Professors' Programme (YPP) supports these early-career academics by helping them adjust to various challenges and mastering the current stage of their career.
The Young Professors' Programme is targeted at associate professors with or without tenure track, as well as junior research group leaders.
