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.

Updated regulations

The SNSF recently updated the regulations of all career funding schemes. As a result, various aspects were adapted, in particular the mobility requirements and the assessment criteria (see News). Further the SNSF Eccellenza Grants, which were directed towards newly appointed tenure track assistant professors, are no longer offered (see News).
