To promote the advancement of talented international researchers at the highest levels of the institution, the UG has initiated the prestigious Rosalind Franklin Fellowship programme. The programme is co-funded by the European Union (2014-2019) and primarily directed at women who have a PhD and aim for a career towards full professorship at a European top research university.

The unique feature of the programme is that it gives excellent female scientists the opportunity to shape their own scientific ambitions.

Our university aims at being an inclusive and diverse open community. This means, among other things, that we strive for more women in higher scientific positions. The Rosalind Franklin Fellowship programme is important in contributing to this goal. The programme has attracted more than 120 fellows since its foundation in 2003.
