Junior Development Program

Junior Development Program 

The Junior Development Program (JunDP) emphasizes individual professional development and provides guidance to talented junior researchers (PostDocs, Habilitanden, Juniorprofessors) on all aspects of building a professional career (national or international). The mentees choose renowned and experienced LMU professors as mentors. The mentors function as role models, offering their mentees support in career planning and in creating their own academic profiles. The program combines structured mentoring with a multi‐leveled series of development workshops, seminars, and networking activities. The program also has funding for research projects available.

The JunDP is part of the Department of Economics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. The department is ranked among the top economic educational institutions in Europe and is reputed for its theoretical and empirical research in combination with relevant policy issues. Mentees at the JunDP are integrated into a stimulating research environment composed of an ambitious, excellent faculty and a large network of research institutions and facilities. The JunDP does not charge tuition fees.
