Welcome to the Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists (KHYS)

The Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists (KHYS) is the central institution for the promotion of junior researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). We support doctoral researchers, postdocs, the Young Investigator Network (YIN), and doctoral programs. Our various offers are specifically targeted to promote junior KIT researchers and foster an open scientific and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and knowledge.

We

  • individually advise, qualify, and support young scientists during their careers
  • further develop the support of young scientists at KIT and maintain the quality of the doctoral research phase
  • support coordinated research programs (e.g. research training groups) for the promotion of young scientists.
