The priority programme funds combinatorics research in Germany through the German Research Foundation DFG. It has two funding periods and its total budget is 7.1 Mio €. The first funding period starting 2024 includes mainly 30 PhD and PostDoc positions at German universities. Researchers in Germany may apply by September 25, 2023, for grants to host such positions. These proposals may have international cooperations and co-PIs. Also, international PhDs and PostDocs may apply for their own PostDoc positions in cooperation with a host at a German university.
Convince your best students to apply and also expect many great students to be on the PostDoc market afterwards. You may also post your international job openings for visibility in the network.
There will in addition be plenty of activities supported by the program. These include:
- Support for international research conferences and workshops. Feel free to contact programme members for joint contributions. See the programme's activities, these include for example the FPSAC 2024 and the Combinatorial Coworkspace.
- Spring, summer, fall, and winter schools related to all aspects of the program. We hope and expect intensive international contributions, both among speakers and participants.
