Applications are now being accepted for the Postdoc Academy for Transformational Leadership, which is designed to develop the next generation of leaders in sustainability and transformation research.
The Postdoc Academy for Transformational Leadership is an initiative of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and a joint project of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the four academic centres Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Leuphana University of Lüneburg, the Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Dutch Research Institute for Transitions (DRIFT) in Rotterdam. It provides an intensive high-end training with four seminars in two years that broaden the research competencies of postdocs and promote their qualifications towards transdisciplinary leadership. The programme also offers seed funding (e.g. for stakeholder meetings or proposal writing activities) to small groups of participants, who plan to initiate research collaborations. Furthermore, an active network of current and former participants of the programme will be established.
The call for applications for the Postdoc Academy 2020-2022 will start on 16 December 2019 and will be closed on 16 February (midnight, CET) 2020.
