31-01-2013: The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Bayer Science & Education Foundation will soon be awarding joint research fellowships. Until 2018, the Bayer Foundation will be making around three million EUR available to fund approximately ten Humboldt-Bayer Research Fellowships annually. The fellows will be selected from the fields of the life sciences, chemistry and pharmacy together with the applicants for regular Humboldt Research Fellowships for postdoctoral researchers.
