Science Program - 3rd call

This is the third call for the Center for Molecular Water Science (CMWS) Science Program (SP), to fund joint research projects within CMWS. The call is dedicated specifically to the research challenges described in the CMWS White Paper. The description of the proposed projects should include a clear connection to at least one of the research challenges.

As in the previous calls, the projects should be funded on a 1:1 basis by DESY and the respective CMWS partner. In this call PhD projects as well as early career postdoctoral projects can be applied for. The maximum funding duration of the PhD projects will be 3 years and for the early career postdoctoral projects up to two years. The candidate should do the research half time at DESY and half time at the partner institution. The postdoctoral candidates should have presented their PhD dissertations not longer than approximately three years ago.

The call is open from now on until 25.07.2022. Please use the template and submit your proposal via email to the coordinator for the third call, Pablo Pinacho (

We are looking forward to your proposals.
