Start-Up Funding Program of the Medical Faculty (Bausteinprogramm)

Call for proposals - Funding period 2019/20
(Baustein 3.2 – Start-up funding and Baustein 3.2V – extension of the Start-up funding)

With immediate effect applications for individual funding of projects („Bausteinprogramm“) can be submitted.

The goal of this program for young scientists (called Bausteinprogramm in German) is to help them start their own research projects that enable them to achieve the previous work and publications that are usually required to successfully attract third-party funding.

Rotation positions (formerly called Baustein 3.4J/3.4S) will no longer be tendered within the Bausteinprogramm but within the new Clinician Scientist Programme of the Medical Faculty of Ulm University.

Please note that the following documents are available in German only.
But applications can also be submitted in English.

The document “Call for proposals” can be found here.

Application deadline: January 07, 2019 (11:00 a.m.)

Start of funding (planned): April 01, 2019

The detailed application modalities are described in the general conditions.

The formal requirements are listed in the application forms (Baustein 3.2 - initial application, Baustein 3.2V - extension)
