Current funding opportunities

Priority Programme “Genomic Basis of Evolutionary Innovations (GEvol)” (SPP 2349)

In March 2021, the Senate of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) established the Priority Programme “Genomic Basis of Evolutionary Innovations (GEvol)” (SPP 2349). The programme is designed to run for six years. The present call invites proposals for the first three-year funding period.

The goal of the Priority Programme is to exploit new methods to reveal in the insect taxon the role of: coding vs. regulatory changes, transposable elements, epigenetic regulation, gene family evolution, copy number dynamics, structural genomic rearrangements etc. in trait evolution by using multiple cutting edge quantitative OMICs resources (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics and epigenomics). Eventually, the emerging hypotheses shall be tested by functional genetics experiments where possible.

Potential applicants are kindly asked to send an abstract of the intended project(s) (applicant(s), preliminary title, abstract of 1500 characters max.) via email to the coordination office by 21 June 2021 at the latest. To allow for mutual information and coordination among applicants, these short summaries will be compiled and made available to all applicants by the coordination office. For more information, please see the Priority Programme’s website:

Female researchers and early career researchers are strongly encouraged to submit a proposal.
