Launch your own research project as an assistant professor with your own team.

​SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships and SNSF Eccellenza Grants are intended for highly qualified young researchers who aspire to a permanent professorship. Eccellenza supports them in achieving their goal as leaders of a generously funded research project with their own team at a Swiss higher education institution.

SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships are aimed at outstanding researchers in all disciplines who have a doctorate or equivalent qualification and are pursuing an academic career, but who have not yet obtained an assistant professorship. These awards replace the SNSF professorships, for which no further calls will be launched. Researchers can request their own salary at the local rates applicable to assistant professorships as well as project funds of up to 1,000,000 Swiss francs for five years.

SNSF Eccellenza Grants are aimed at researchers in all disciplines who have recently been appointed as tenuretrack assistant professors at a Swiss higher education institution. They can apply for project funds of up to 1,500,000 Swiss francs for five years.
