Ursula von Euch Stiftung
There is a special fellowship from the Ursula von Euch Stiftung at the university that supports the contribution and career of more female scientists with children in science. It is applicable to female PhD students, post-docs and scientists within the departments of biology, medicine etc. They provide financial support to manage childcare, household and scientific work. Please find more information in the link below:
(Unfortunately, there is currently no information about application deadlines in 2018. I will get in touch with the responsible person to be updated.)
The university offers a mentoring program for female scientists up from Post doc level to support their career towards a professorship. The program provides mentoring, soft skill training and networking opportunities. Please find more information in the flyer below (german only):

The CRU cluster will provide financial support of private babysitters/childcare due to overtime hours. To discuss handling of this support will take some more time. Thus, we ask you to be patient until more information can be provided.
The option to bring an accompanying person for conference participation to manage childcare is still under revision and the final decision is pending. We will inform you as soon as possible.
Equality measures to be installed also include LabAid (student assistant for pregnant scientists and male or female scientists with young children) as well as travel grants for conference participation of female scientists. To discuss handling of this support will take some more time, thus we ask you to be patient until more information can be provided.
