It is with deep dismay and concerns that we look at the injustices that are currently happening in Ukraine. We express our solidarity and compassion with those that suffer from this war and its consequences. The University of Jena and the city of Jena jointly coordinate aid efforts. 

We have initiated this website for researchers from Ukraine. Here you can find an overview of all contact persons who can help you find counsel and support and provide information on funding programmes.

In addition, the DFG offers further possibilities.

Supplemental proposals can be directed at any funding that allows the persons concerned to be integrated into the project as research assistants, doctoral candidates, postdocs or professors.
