Young scientists and artists from all disciplines can apply for membership of Die Junge Akademie online until November 15, 2022.

Die Junge Akademie accepts ten new members every year. In interdisciplinary exchange, the members seek new approaches to unsolved problems and engage in joint projects and Research Groups at the intersections of science, art, society and politics. For realizing their projects, they have a research budget and a personal budget for individual support.

The call for applications addresses young scientists and artists who can present a doctoral thesis or a work of artistic qualification. The final examination date of this work must be at least three, but no longer than seven years ago by the end of the application period (November 15, 2022). In addition, a personal profile or at least one other outstanding academic or artistic work is expected. Candidates should have a sound knowledge of the German language. Appointed members will be expected to actively participate in Die Junge Akademie’s events, most of which take place in Germany.

The annual selection is carried out alternately by the supporting academies of Die Junge Akademie (the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina) and Die Junge Akademie itself. The selection by Die Junge Akademie requires the candidates to submit their applications, followed by a two-phase selection procedure. A selection committee consisting of current members of Die Junge Akademie will review the applications and invite the candidates to selection interviews in Potsdam in February, 2023. The admission of the new members will take place during the summer plenary session of 2023.
