The Hector Fellow Academy (HFA) is a community of excellent academics – the Hector Fellows – who have been recognized by the Hector Foundation for their merit in research and teaching within natural sciences, informatics, mathematics, medicine / psychology and engineering. They work at different research institutions across Germany.
PhD students of the HFA get the opportunity to carry out a self-developed research project or an advertised PhD position under supervision of one of the Hector Fellows. Thereby, they benefit from the expertise and the research network of their renowned mentor.
HFA PhD students are employed as research assistants at the university of the supervising Hector Fellow for three years. The funded position is depending upon DFG regulation. In addition, the PhD students receive grants for research expenses for their project (9,500 EUR per year) and are given the opportunity to gain interdisciplinary expertise and relevant soft skills by participating in selected activities e.g. management courses, trainings & networking events.
