Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Framework of the Henriette-Herz Scouting Program

Andreas Walther has been selected by the AvH Foundation to act as a Henriette-Herz Scout to invite up to three Postdoctoral Fellows into a AvH Postdoc-Fellowship Scheme.

This provides a unique opportunity to postdocs to shape their indivdual profile in Germany's best postdoc program. You will be part of the lifelong Humboldt Network. Applications are possible anytime.


  • overlap to our research interests: e.g. DNA Nanoscience, Biointeractive Materials, Systems Chemistry, Self-Assembly and Active Matter

  • very good publication track record

  • international PhD

  • no studies or research stays in Germany after the PhD

  • no German Citizenship

  • no prior application to the AvH foundation

  • timely availability

Interested? Send an Email to AW to discuss. Ideally provide some information on what inspires you and what you want to do, and enclose a CV on your past research experience.
