Eleven short research stays with GFZ participation funded

The "Helmholtz Information and Data Science Academy" funds eleven short research stays with GFZ participation. The new bidding round starts on 15.08.2022.

"Broadening horizons" is the motto of the exchange programs of the "Helmholtz Information and Data Science Academy" (HIDA). This opportunity is now available to eleven scientists whose projects were funded for one to three months. While seven international scientists from universities in Germany, Europe, India and Israel are coming to the GFZ for their research, two GFZ scientists are carrying out their projects at the Helmholtz Centres in Karlsruhe (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) and Halle (Centre for Environmental Research UFZ). Two further GFZ scientists will have the opportunity to continue their research work at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.

The new call for applications for a fully funded short-term research stay at one of the 18 Helmholtz Centres for PhD students and PostDocs who are not working at a Helmholtz Centre will start soon. Applications for the "Helmholtz Visiting Researcher Grant" can be submitted from 15.8.2022 to 15.10.2022.

"Broadening Horizons" - with the Helmholtz Information and Data Science Academy (HIDA)

HIDA is Germany's largest postgraduate training network in the information and data sciences and aims to promote knowledge transfer in these fields within the Helmholtz Association and beyond. As the umbrella organisation for the six "Helmholtz Information & Data Science Research Schools", the Academy promotes the training of more than 250 doctoral students at the interface between the data sciences and the Helmholtz research fields. HIDA also offers all Helmholtz junior researchers attractive opportunities to train and develop in a broad spectrum of methods and to become part of an international data science network.

In addition, the "Helmholtz Information and Data Science Academy" establishes international and national exchange programs for talents in data science:

The HIDA Trainee Network, for example, enables young Helmholtz junior scientists to spend one to three months doing research at another Helmholtz Centre and supports them financially.

In parallel, the Helmholtz Visiting Researcher Program is open to data scientists from other research institutions, industry or from abroad. Here, too, HIDA supports one to three-month guest stays at one of the 18 Helmholtz Centres.

With the Israel Exchange Program, HIDA offers Helmholtz PhD students and postdocs the opportunity to work on exciting, six-week research projects in Israel. Together with the "Israel Data Science Initiative", Helmholtz Information and Data Science Academy announces new data science projects at renowned Israeli research institutions every year so that young scientists can exchange methods and establish international networks.

Future calls for proposals will be announced via the GFZ advisory office "Projects & International Affairs". For further information on the programs, please contact the persons listed here.
