Encouraging researchers to apply for SNSF financed group leader positions to be hosted by the DBC
The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) offers three funding schemes for career development aimed at junior group leaders:
- Ambizione grants are aimed at young researchers who wish to conduct, manage and lead an independent project at a Swiss higher education institution. The scheme supports young researchers both from Switzerland and abroad. Scientists holding non-professorial academic positions at higher education institutions are also eligible to submit an application.
- PRIMA grants are aimed at excellent women researchers who show a high potential for obtaining a professorship. PRIMA grantees conduct an independent research project with their own team at a Swiss research institution.
- SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships are aimed at highly qualified young researchers who aspire to a permanent professorship. Eccellenza supports them in achieving their goal by allowing them to lead a generously funded research project for up to five years with their own team at a Swiss higher education institution.
Candidates should send their CV and a one-page outline of their research ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org half a year before the next application deadline.
