Research Activities

The GGS strives to increase the intensity of research and to promote the culture and acquisition of third-party funding among the GGS' early career researchers. Thus, the GGS offers its postdoctoral members a research-intensive environment in the research sections and provides information and support for the research promotion of early career researchers at the GGS.



Research sections

Our sections offer you the opportunity to network in your field or to start interdisciplinary cooperation. Within the sections, you can take on a leadership role as a early career researcher and thus gain valuable experience. We support the activities of the sections both administratively and financially. Please feel free to contact us! If you are interested in a specific section, please contact the section spokespersons (sections heads).

You find further information about the sections on our research section overview.


Research funding

In recent years, the share of basic funding for universities and higher education institutions has declined, while the share of externally acquired third-party funding has increased. For this reason, it is a necessity for universities to attract researchers that are successful in acquiring third-party funding, which is also reflected in the appointment of professors. There are various ways to raise funds for research funding.  

It is advisable to first gain experience with smaller, low-threshold programmes and then apply for larger projects. Funds raised in the past often have a positive effect on the application for further funding. Besides internal funding from JLU

there is a large number of programmes and calls for proposals.
