Research delay for PhD students and postdocs

The Executive Board, with the consent of the University Council, has decided to make additional funds available to compensate for research delays among junior researchers with temporary contracts. However, we would strongly encourage you to please first look for solutions, that help to complete your research within the current available resources and timeframe. Of course, the research quality will always be paramount and we realise that a solution for contracts nearing expiry date is not always possible. The university therefore has an extension scheme to accommodate these employees where necessary. The scheme is intended to allow an extension for PhD students(with or without a contract), postdocs, SiOs and, in special cases, support and administrative staff involved in a research project who have been delayed by the corona crisis and cannot reasonably complete their research within the stipulated time. More information on the conditions and approach of the scheme is available on theĀ intranet.
