The TWAS-DFG Cooperation Visits Programme – MENA from The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) supports postdoctoral researchers from MENA countries for a 3-months cooperation visit to Germany. Applications are open to postdoctoral researchers in Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen.

  • Applicants need to hold a PhD obtained not earlier than 2019; however, for female applicants the year limit for the PhD can be extended by two years per child, i.e. for a woman with one child the PhD year would be 2017 or later. This exception for female applicants has a limit of three children which equals a maximum of six years. Therefore, the PhD of a female applicant with three or more children should not have been obtained before 2013.
  • Applicants must be nationals of a MENA country and hold a research position in a MENA country.
  • Applicants already on site in Germany are not eligible.
  • Applicants with an established collaboration with the intended host are not eligible. Examples of established collaboration include one common publication with the host Professor; a previous visit to the host laboratory; interactions between applicant and supervisor as a result of meeting at a conference; the host Professor was previously the applicant’s MSc or PhD supervisor.
  • Previous recipients of a TWAS-DFG Cooperation Visit cannot reapply. For a second visit, the German host can apply for funding under the DFG Initiation of International Collaboration Programme.
  • Women scientists are especially encouraged to apply.
  • All academic fields will be considered.

The Award provides travel and subsistence costs in Germany. Applications close on June 5, 2024.
