KIT does a lot for the targeted and structured promotion of junior research group leaders. Faced with numerous and diverse funding instruments for the establishment of junior research groups, KIT has defined uniform criteria that assure a group's quality and lead to the recognition of the group as "KIT-Nachwuchsgruppe" (KIT Junior Research Group).
As a young group leader at KIT, apply for recognition as "KIT-Nachwuchsgruppe" to make your group more visible inside and outside KIT. The recognition certificate paves the path to further possibilities and perspectives at KIT.
Thus, the certificate is required if you wish to participate in the doctoral procedures of members of your junior research group. For this purpose, heads of a "KIT-Nachwuchsgruppe" can apply for the status KIT Associate Fellow. In addition, they may apply for membership in the Young Investigator Network (YIN).
