"Reaching for the Stars"

Universities are a driving force for the scientific and societal advance through their discoveries and inventions, and because they educate the next generation of leaders and innovators. Early-career researchers have therefore always been of utmost importance to the University of Bonn.

The University of Bonn is committed to

  • support early independence of talented researchers, enabling them to pursue their own scientific ideas;
  • provide opportunities to stand out and for success outside the beaten path through a system of flexible and supportive structures;
  • clearly delineate career paths at the University of Bonn, with transparent criteria for academic advancements.

ArgelanderArchThe University of has established the Argelander Program for Early-Career Researchers as a comprehensive supporting system to foster the development of young scientists at all academic stages, from doctoral researchers to tenure-track professors. We know that many of which strive for success in academia, while others seek career paths in private corporations or public institutions, or take on the challenge of starting their own business. The Argelander Program aims to prepare these researchers for their career challenges and to bring out their best.

The Argelander Program, named after Friedrich Wilhelm August Argelander, is based on a triangular concept of orientation, qualification and support. We interrogate the professional goals of our early-career researchers and assess their professional qualifications (orientation), improve their competencies through academic and non-academic training (qualification), and enable them to excel (support).

The service institutions for early-career researchers are happy to help you in the Argelander Competence Center (in the Alte Sternwarte (Old Observatory), Poppelsdorfer Allee 47).
