LSA Fellows


In order to allow post-docs the freedom of independent research, CBBS tenders research grants (LSA-Fellows) with a dedicated budget.

The research grants serve the purpose of tying researchers to our location to promote excellence in research in Magdeburg. Also, this creates innovative projects without tight restrictions on research aims and methods, which helps these “Starter Projects” develop new methods or investigate new areas of research by themselves or through co-operations, possibly finding the next break-through in their field. This also gives scientists the possibility to assess innovative questions that do not necessarily match their previous research, creating new degrees of freedom in creativeness.

This instrument also aims to create independent researchers well-equipped with the knowledge and experience of acquiring third-party funding during their grants.

After careful review of the multitude of project proposal submissions we have chosen to support the following with funding:
