Call for Applications: Albrecht Struppler Clinician Scientist Fellowships

For the first time, TUM-IAS invites applications for the Albrecht Struppler Clinician Scientist Fellowship to promote outstanding scientific work and to foster research cooperations at TUM within the framework of the Excellence Strategy of the German government and the federal states.

The Fellowship was named after Albrecht Struppler (1919-2009), the first holder of a chair of neurology at TUM and a pioneer in building a bridge from the neurosciences to engineering. With this Fellowship, the TUM-IAS would like to encourage out-of-the-box ideas and cross-disciplinary exchange that may otherwise get lost in the busy everyday clinical routine, and reinforce health and medical sciences with perspectives and expertise from non-medical disciplines.

The three-year Albrecht Struppler Clinician Scientist Fellowship is aimed at outstanding, high-potential early-career physicians working at the TUM University Hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar who intend to further develop an independent research profile. The Fellowship offers a relief of up to 50% from clinical duties to carry out a transdisciplinary research project in collaboration with scientists from a department/school different to the TUM School of Medicine.
