Ambizione and Professeur boursier fellowships

The DEE is fortunate to have a number of Ambizione and Professeur boursier fellows as part of its academic staff. These fellows contribute to our research environment in terms of their research, the graduates they train, contributions they make to our intellectual environment, and to teaching.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of applying for an externally funded fellowship in the DEE:

1. Check your eligibility and the participation requirements for Ambizione or for SNF Professorship at:


2. Contact the Group Leader(s) in the DEE whose research interests are most closely aligned with yours.
