DKFZ program to support Ukrainian researchers at risk

We are following the military aggression against Ukraine with great concern. With our program, the DKFZ offers temporary opportunities and support for refugee researchers from Ukraine to continue their research.

Framework
The program is aimed at students, doctoral students and post-doctoral scientists in the fields of life sciences, medicine and information technology related to cancer research.
Funding is available for persons who have had to leave Ukraine due to the current situation and/or are personally at risk due to political persecution. Persons who immigrate for purely economic reasons, as well as persons who have already been in Germany for longer than three months at the time of the call for applications, are generally excluded from funding within this program. Also excluded are persons who are already receiving funding under other aid programmes (e.g. the Philipp Schwartz Initiative of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation) or who have access to a safe country of residence due to dual citizenship or other circumstances (e.g. marriage to an EU citizen).

Financial support is provided in the form of a stipend for an initial period of 6 months, or through employment as a research assistant for students.

Requirements and information needed from the applicants
→ Personal data:
Name, date and place of birth, citizenship, passport copy, contact details
→ Research institution of origin with proof
→ Degree and proof of qualification plus curriculum vitae
→ Brief description of research interests
→ Sufficient English or German skills

Applications can be submitted at any time via the email address ukraine-support@dkfz.de

The German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) with its more than 3,000 employees is the largest biomedical research institution in Germany. More than 1,300 scientists at the DKFZ investigate how cancer develops, identify cancer risk factors and search for new strategies to prevent people from developing cancer. They are developing new methods to diagnose tumors more precisely and treat cancer patients more successfully. The DKFZ's Cancer Information Service (KID) provides patients, interested citizens and experts with individual answers to all questions on cancer.

Jointly with partners from the university hospitals, the DKFZ operates the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) in Heidelberg and Dresden, and the Hopp Children's Tumour Center KiTZ in Heidelberg. In the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK), one of the six German Centers for Health Research, the DKFZ maintains translational centers at seven university partner locations. NCT and DKTK sites combine excellent university medicine with the high-profile research of the DKFZ. They contribute to the endeavor of transferring promising approaches from cancer research to the clinic and thus improving the chances of cancer patients.

The DKFZ is 90 percent financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and 10 percent by the state of Baden-Württemberg. The DKFZ is a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.
