Visiting Scientist Program

We host professors from other institutes around the world via our Guest Professor Program, with the goal of developing and strengthening international research collaboration. To further enhance information exchange, many of the guest professors share a joint postdoc with a Microverse professor.

Early stage researchers are welcomed to Jena via our Scientist Exchange Program (more information at the bottom of the page). We welcome applications from incoming and outgoing early career stage scientists who want to build collaborations between the Microverse Cluster and external research programs.

Scientist Exchange

Interdisciplinary and international collaboration is the way forward in science. We provide funds for our Microverse members to visit other labs outside of Germany for short to medium length research stays, and invite outside researchers likewise to Jena. The purpose of these stays can be to establish or continue a collaboration, use a specific instrument or technique, or obtain training.

Microverse members who would like to apply for funds can find more information in the member restricted Intranet. Outside researchers whose work compliments that of the Microverse and would like to come to Jena are encouraged to contact Microverse group leaders with a short proposal.

Further questions can be addressed to - use the subject heading Scientist Exchange Funds.
