The aim of the funding for research posts as Postdoctoral Researcher is to support the most promising researchers who have recently completed their doctoral degree in gaining competence for demanding researcher or expert positions.
Postdoctoral Researchers have established effective national or international collaborative networks. In the review of applications, particular attention will be paid to the international dimension of the research plan. Postdoctoral Researchers are encouraged to engage in international mobility and collaboration.
We recommend that Postdoctoral Researchers provide (without separate compensation) supervision of thesis and dissertation writers in their own field and teaching associated with their field of expertise, covering 5% of annual working hours. However, no more than 10% of the annual working hours should be spent on teaching and other work not immediately associated with the researcher’s own research.
To be eligible to apply, you must be a researcher with up to four years of experience since PhD completion or up to eight years if you have obtained the degree simultaneously with medical specialist training. To be eligible, you will also be required to have switched research environments or engaged in mobility after completing your doctoral degree.
The application guidelines are available in the latest September call text.
