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

​​SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships are aimed at highly qualified researchers who aspire to a permanent professorship. Eccellenza supports them in achieving their goal by allowing them to lead a generously funded research project as an assistant professor with their team at a Swiss higher education institution.

Eccellenza covers the grantee's salary at the local rates applicable to assistant professorships and project funds of up to 1,000,000 Swiss francs for a five-year period.

SNSF Eccellenza Grants for newly appointed tenure-track assistant professors will no longer be offered for the launch of the call on November 2, 2020. However, the SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships will continue to be offered.

News "No new Eccellenza Grants as of 2021" from August 24, 2020.
