  • Over the five-year term, the salary grant amounts to 789 973 euros per Academy Professor, which corresponds to a monthly salary of 9,000 euros.
  • The funding recipients may later apply for funding for research costs with a separate application.

Applicants for funding for a research post as Academy Professor must have demonstrated excellence in research and must contribute to the development of their field as a whole, both during and after their professorship.

The Academy Professor posts are intended for leading-edge researchers for fixed-term, full-time research and related tasks. Academy Professors pursue their own research plan, supervise their team and provide guidance to junior researchers.

The Academy Professor call has two stages. The letters of intent are reviewed in the September 2019 call panels. The Academy’s General Subcommittee decides on which applicants are included in the second call stage based on the review reports. The second call stage is carried out in spring 2020.
