Mobility Fellowships

Individual research stays for one to three months at international top-ranked universities, research laboratories and partners in the private sector are important factors for the personal and career development of our doctoral candidates. Mobility Fellows can acquire new skills and methods which are not part of their local training and start new collaborations.

Secondments have connected our students to international research leaders at Stanford University, Harvard University, MIT, University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University, ENS/Paris, Imperial College/London, University of Queensland, Oxford University, Ludwig Maximilians University/MPQ Garching and many more.

Information on deadlines and application procedure can be accessed by active VDSP students in the VDSP intranet.
