SNSF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowships (SPF) 2022

Grants for young researchers who want to have an expert scientific training and to develop their academic career in Switzerland.

Switzerland is considered a non-associated third country in Horizon Europe. Based on a government mandate, the SNSF is this year launching a new call for applications to its transitional measure "SNSF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowships". The call is aimed at researchers of all nationalities who wanted to apply for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellowship (MSCA PF).

This funding scheme will offer applicants with a PhD and no more than eight years of postdoctoral experience a position at a non-commercial research institution in Switzerland for 12-24 months.

The grant includes the postdoctoral fellow’s salary as well as social security contributions and contributions to research and conference costs.

Researchers whose application for an SNSF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowship 2021 was rejected may submit a revised application, involving the same host institution, provided they achieved an evaluation score of at least 6.3 out of 9. The same regulation applies under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellowships (MSCA PF), where at least 70% of the maximum score is required.
