Young Investigator Network (YIN)


One aim of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)   is to attract “high potentials” from all over the world, especially  withscientific and technical backround, and to provide them with attractive working conditions. Numerous junior researchers, who have already proven their excellence with outstanding research results, could be attracted to work at KIT already.

Established in spring 2008, the Young Investigator Network (YIN) is the platform and democratic representation of interests for junior research group leaders at KIT. The main tasks of the YIN are:
• representation of interests and networking of its members
• Advancement training of leadership skills and personal qualification.
Network members are responsible for their independent research projects in various scientific fields which are funded by third parties. Furthermore they bear personnel responsibility as leaders of their own independent junior research groups. Moreover, YIN members contribute significantly towards teaching at the KIT.
A wide-ranging advanced training program is offered to network members to assist them in their further qualification as leaders in research and teaching or in the industry. This includes individual interim reviews,  workshops, e.g. in project management  and human resources management,   as well as an individual coaching program. The complete training program  has been developed especially for the YIN members in cooperation with the Staff Development (PEBA) at the KIT.
