Programme with MoHRSS, OCPC China

Information on the Programme

Based on the multilateral agreement between Helmholtz Association and other Helmholtz Centers including GSI for a Postdoctoral fellowship is established. The programme is open to Chinese postdoctoral students who did not graduate more than five years ago and who are working in a research institute or a university in China. With a scholarship, they can research two years at a Helmholtz centre. Both Host centres of the Helmholtz Association and the Office of China Postdoctoral Council (OCPC) of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security (MoHRSS) share the Scholarship.
