The Collaborative Research Grant Program is intended to fund collaborative research projects addressing broad questions related to how animal societies emerge and function. Grants support integrated research teams of 2-3 postdocs to tackle broad and important biological questions by drawing on diverse perspectives and skill sets. Grants cover salary for all team members (employment at the University of Konstanz, German salary scale TV-L, level E 13) over 3 years, with a possibility of extension for an additional year, as well as funding to cover research expenses and professional development activities.

CRG projects relate to the broad focus of the Ecology of Animal Societies Department. All post docs participate actively in the development of our scientific community, and contribute to a collaborative and friendly research environment.
