Academy Research Fellows work on research plans that have been rated to be of a high scientific quality. They have built extensive research networks, and the funding allows them to develop their academic leadership skills and establish themselves as independent researchers in the international scientific community.

Academy Research Fellow funding is not granted to persons who hold tenured professorships or other senior-level research posts at research organisations.

Successful applicants will have been engaged in successful scientific publication, collaboration and research for 3–9 years since PhD completion. If they have completed medical specialist training after gaining their doctoral degree, applicants may have up to 13 years of experience since PhD completion.

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. The results of Academy-funded projects must be made public and they must be produced following good scientific practice. In other words, the research must be ethical, follow the principles of sustainable development and make its results, material and data openly accessible. Equality and non-discrimination must also be considered.
