With the ABB Research Award in Honor of Hubertus von Gruenberg, ABB is giving outstanding postdocs a chance to continue their research.

Who can apply?
Everyone who has recently earned their doctoral degrees in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, robotics, process automation, and related academic disciplines to apply for the research award if they have successfully completed their doctoral degrees within the years between 2013 and 2015 and are currently working at a university, research institution or comparable organization.

Those applicants whose dissertations involve power or automation topics in the fields of energy, manufacturing, transportation, and infrastructure will have a particularly good chance of winning this substantial personal research grant. But other exceptional work is also very welcome, especially if the creative use of software, electronics, or new materials promises to lead to innovative industrial solutions. The jury will look for specific real-world applications and potential for innovation. The benefit of the research to society and the environment will also factor highly into the jury’s decision.

How and when can I apply?
You need to submit your application for the $ 300,000 grant by January 31, 2016. Please submit the following documents to ABB in English by the above deadline:
  • Applicant name, dissertation title, dissertation abstract, university name, and date of defense.
