Visiting Young Scholars Program

Travel and accommodation costs for up to three months are provided to young scholars who want to pursue their research project at the SOEP Research Data Center. Per diems are not provided; longer self-financed stays are also possible. The precondition for acceptance in this program is that the analyses will be conducted using the SOEP data, either exclusively or in combination with other datasets, and that the results will be published as a SOEPpaper at the latest three months after the end of the stay. Applicants must be under the age of 35.

Please submit your CV and a brief description of your research project (no longer than three pages, also including the time required and the SOEP data you plan to use). SOEP provides research stays for up to five visiting young scholars per year.
