Future Ocean Humboldt Fellowships


sponsored by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Cluster of Excellence “The Future Ocean”

Prospective candidates submit applications to the AvH Foundation, which conducts the selection process, and those selected are integrated into the IMAP postdoctoral network. The AvH Foundation views this partnership as an innovative model for future cooperation with other institutions in Germany. The first AvH Future Ocean fellows started their research in Kiel in the summer of 2010.

If you would like to work with us and are looking for a new research challenge, apply for the Humboldt Future Ocean Research Fellowship and explore the Future Ocean with us.


As an Alexander von Humboldt fellow, you will gain more than just funding for your research project. You will become part of the Humboldt network, connecting excellent researchers in Germany with the most gifted in the world. Through this network you will make contacts which will continue throughout your career.
