e. What level of employment must be devoted to research?

In principle, SNSF Eccellenza Professional Fellowships require a level of employment of 100%. A reduction to a minimum of 80% is possible in specific cases such as family obligations. The minimal percentage that must be devoted to research is variably defined for different situations:

  • Eccellenza at a university or ETH: at least 80% research, 20% teaching
  • Eccellenza at a university of applied science or a university of teacher education: at least 70% research and further scientific education, 30% teaching
  • Eccellenza for researchers who do clinical work: at least 50% research; up to 50% clinical activities
