JARA Awards – JARA Excellent Junior

Within the framework of the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich are providing a joint incentive for excellent early career scientists. The JARA Excellent Junior award is presented by RWTH Aachen University to excellent early career scientists for their scientific work (projects, studies) within the context of JARA. The work must be original and highly relevant to one of the JARA research fields. In addition, the work should have been performed by optimally exploiting the multilocational potential associated with JARA and/or by involving selected JARA research partners at several locations.

The award for early career scientists is presented by JARA in recognition of above average achievements made by young scientists and simultaneously aims to improve the scientific visibility of these early career scientists. The JARA Excellent Junior award is worth € 5,000 (gross) and each award can be shared by a maximum of two winners.

In addition to a candidate applying personally, candidates may also be proposed by a JARA member.
