Call for applications

Promoting equal opportunity and achieving equal participation for women and men are among BIH’s strategic goals and provide an important basis for excellent research. Despite the high percentage of female students, women remain underrepresented in certain academic fields (notably medicine), in scientific research, and in professorships. Berlin Health Institute (BIH) seeks to remedy this situation by supporting the career paths of female scientists and clinicians. Each year, a call for applications is issued for the BIH Gender Equality Fund in order to promote the research activities of female scientists and clinicians and further improve their career-relevant qualifications.

  • Contribution to the costs of hiring student assistants (max. 5,000 euros)

  • Contribution to the costs of active conference participation (max. 1,500 euros)

  • Contribution to the costs of individual career coaching or other training to improve your qualifications (max. 1,500 euros)

  • Contribution to the costs of open access publication fees (max. 2,000 euros)

Funding is limited to a maximum of 5,000 euros per person and per calendar year.


Eligible applicants are early-career and mid-career women scientists including junior professors and junior group leaders working within the BIH translational research commons who are pursuing translational research projects.


Applications can be submitted until July 14, 3pm. Please upload all required documents via the BIH application portal
