An Academy Research Fellowship supports early-career researchers on fast career tracks. The funding supports the researchers so that they can 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 the renewal of science.

Fellowships will not be granted to persons holding a permanent and senior research position (e.g. professor, assistant/associate professor, research director) or a comparable position.

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