The Dahlem Research School's Postdoc Fellowship Program provides funding for outstanding postdoctoral researchers from all disciplines to conduct their own research project at Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin.

The aim is to support highly-qualified postdoctoral researchers who are outstanding in their field and to integrate them into one of the university’s research groups in an early phase of their career.
The program is designed to promote the further academic career development through research funding, a tailored qualification program including essential professional guidance on preparing grant proposals, and the opportunity to develop teaching and leadership skills. At the end of the funding period, DRS fellows are expected to apply for funding for follow-up research projects at Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin.
