An Academy Research Fellowship supports early-career researchers on fast career tracks. The funding supports the researcher so that they can increase their competencies and make significant career progress towards more demanding research positions and achieve an established position in the national and international research community. Academy Research Fellows produce high-quality, high-impact research that stimulates scientific renewal.

The Academy Research Fellowship is intended for a researcher who does not yet hold a permanent and senior research position. Such positions are, for instance, professor, assistant/associate professor, research director and comparable posts.

At the core of the Research Council of Finland’s activities is to provide funding for excellent scientific research. The research we fund is also expected to have high scientific and societal impact and follow the principles of responsible science.
