About the program
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) initiated the PRIME fellowship program to support the international mobility of postdoctoral researchers by temporary positions at German universities.
It gives Postdoctoral researchers of all nationalities the opportunity of a 18-month fellowship. Out of those, the successful candidate will spend a 12 months research stay abroad and subsequently 6 months German university. However, the destination of the research stay may usually not be the country where you are currently employed (see documentation for details). The fellowship provides funding through an 18-month temporary job position according to the appropriate rate for postdoctoral researchers (according to the German pay scale “TV-L E13”).
