SNSF Research Commissions

The Research Commissions are based at higher education institutions and act as a link between them and the Swiss National Science Foundation.

​In their function as bodies of the SNSF they are responsible for:

  • awarding mobility fellowships to doctoral students (Doc.Mobility) and to postdocs starting their careers (Early Postdoc.Mobility);
  • selecting (in the 1st phase) candidates for Doc.CH grants in the humanities and social sciences;
  • information and advice with regard to SNSF funding schemes, particularly Doc.CH, Doc.Mobility and Early Postdoc.Mobility
