The DFG funded Research Training Group RESPONSE (Biological Responses to Novel and Changing Environments; https://biologie.uni-greifswald.de/forschung/dfg-graduiertenkollegs/research-training-group-2010/) invites applications for Exchange Grants. In order to foster collaborations between RESPONSE members and other scientists, researchers are invited to spend a period of 2-12 weeks at one of the RESPONSE labs in Greifswald, Germany. Exchange Grants should involve the execution of a collaborative research project relevant to RESPONSE, i.e. on issues related to environmental change. We particularly aim to integrate research across multiple levels of investigation, including ecology, evolution, genetics, physiology, behaviour, theory or modelling. The deadline for grant applications is March 1st 2017.

Grantees must be hosted by a participating researcher of RESPONSE (https://biologie.uni-greifswald.de/forschung/dfg-graduiertenkollegs/research-training-group-2010/) and undertake high quality scientific research at the University of Greifswald. Funding by RESPONSE must be acknowledged in publications resulting from the grantee’s work in relation to the Exchange Grant. Persons affiliated with Greifswald University are not eligible.

Application Procedure
Applications for RESPONSE Exchange Grants should include the following information:

  • scientific CV including a publication list,
  • letter of acceptance from the prospective RESPONSE host,
  • project title and short description of the proposed project (max. 1200 words),
  • proposed starting date and duration,
  • estimated travel costs.

Applications should be submitted as one PDF file to the spokesperson of the research training network (email to klaus.fischer@uni-greifswald.de). Funding decisions will be made by the RESPONSE Executive Board based on scientific quality and relevance to the aims of RESPONSE.

Exchange Grants are reimbursed on the basis of an allowance of 400 EUR per week (for 2-12 weeks) plus actual travel expenses up to a maximum of 500 EUR. The grants do not cover health insurance, taxes, or retirement scheme contributions.
