Solidarity with Ukraine

Solidarity statement of the medical faculty

The Medical Faculty of Tübingen, together with the University of Tübingen and scientists from all over the world, also expresses its solidarity with the people of Ukraine. Concerns about the country and freedom in Europe and the world are growing daily. We are committed to the University's mission statement and the obligation it states to respect human dignity, freedom of opinion and speech, and freedom of science and research.
We want to set an example by participating in the support of foreign scholars and university employees. The university has announced research grants for refugee scientists. We would also like to offer laboratory employees and technical staff the opportunity to work here for a limited period of time if they meet the relevant requirements.

Further education and training scholarships / temporary contracts for refugees (laboratory staff) from Ukraine

The Medical Faculty of Tübingen has set up an emergency fund for the support of Ukrainian persons at risk who can be assigned to the area of "laboratory personnel" (e.g. medical technical assistance) in the broadest sense. Further education and training grants can be awarded for an initial period of 6 to a maximum of 12 months.
Furthermore, there is the possibility to offer laboratory employees and technical staff a temporary position if the corresponding requirements are met (vacant and fillable position or existing third-party funding).
