Submission of projects
Faculty members (PIs) with interest in recruiting JLU-CAREER candidates for their research projects will be asked to submit their project outlines in a digital format via the website not later than 1st of February each year, also indicating if an extension into a PhD project is intended. The faculty structure allows JLU-CAREER recruits to either choose a „tandem research project“, which involves both a clinical and a biomedical discipline or, alternatively, a research project within their own host institution. Tandem research project applications are highly encouraged to promote an interdisciplinary and interfaculty exchange and should be considered as an attractive strategy to increase excellency and chances for funding. Following this line, it may appear reasonable to design collaborative (tandem) projects between clinical and biomedical supervisors well in advance of the herein mentioned deadlines.
Deadline for project submission: February 1st of each year. - Year 2021: Application deadline expanded until 31st March 2021-
Together with the submitted project outline, the PI will also need to upload a signed declaration to fully accept and obeye the principles of good clinical and scientific practice, as released by the DFG (Vorschläge zur Sicherung guter wissenschaftlicher Praxis / Proposals for Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice ) and by the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities.
Such declaration should also indicate the willingness of the PI to agree that JLU-CAREER clinician scientists working on the PI´s project will store copies of her or his lab books and experimental data on a secure server area of the Faculty of Medicine (access to this area is only granted to the steering committee for quality control issues; any access of the steering committee to this data will be recorded).
