The Pre-Doc Award is a funding programme at the Leipzig University that supports doctoral researchers and postdocs in tandem to develop a joint research project.

 During the one-year funding phase, the pre- and postdoctoral researchers work on a doctoral project and acquire appropriate follow-up funding. Predocs receive one year's funding and the tandems are supported by an extensive programme of activities, including a kick-off and closing event, a wide range of workshops, exchange meetings and individual funding opportunities.

Prospective doctoral researchers and postdocs can still apply with a joint doctoral project until 20 June 2024.
