Einstein BIH Visiting Fellows are top-level scientists working abroad and recruited for continuous activities as visiting scientists at the BIH and its partners, the Charité and MDC. They are leading researchers in their field of the life sciences. The fellowships are not conceived for the classic visiting professors coming for an uninterrupted guest stay of one to two semesters (based frequently on taking leave) but for scientists remaining employed by and active at their home institution abroad while simultaneously contributing to the life sciences in Berlin on an ongoing basis.



The Einstein BIH Visiting Fellow Program is a cooperative venture by Stiftung Charité and the Einstein Foundation Berlin. The Einstein BIH Visiting Fellowships are awarded to internationally distinguished researchers. Funding is up to 150,000 euro  per year per fellow, and is initially approved for a period of three years.
