Postdocs at KIT are scientists with a doctoral degree who work as scientists for a limited period of time of generally up to three years. The postdoctoral phase at KIT can follow directly after the doctorate or after an already completed postdoctoral phase at another university or non-university institution. As a postdoctoral researcher, you can profit from all of the benefits of the KHYS Network.
Research stays abroad
If they have not already done so, postdoctoral junior researchers should complete research travel abroad during the postdoctoral period, for example as supported by the KHYS Research Travel Grant. Nowadays, international experience is a significant support aspect for many programs (e.g. Junior Research Group Leader) and a general precondition where academic qualification is concerned.
