This is 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 candidates, doctoral researchers, postdocs and the Young Investigator Network (YIN) and connect the doctoral programs at KIT.


  • 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
