FRIAS Call for Applications for the FRIAS Cofund Fellowship Programme (FCFP)
FRIAS is announcing for the third time its call for applications for the FRIAS-Cofund–Fellowship-Programme (FCFP). Outstanding senior and junior researchers from all disciplines and nationalities are invited to apply. According to the EU mobility rule, applicants may not have carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) or have had their main residence in Germany for more than a total of 12 months during the 3-year period prior to the application deadline. About 25 Fellowships will be awarded, co-financed by the European Union’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND-Programme and the State of Baden-Württemberg.
There are two types of Fellowships: Junior Fellowships for early-stage academics (minimum requirement: doctorate; duration of stay: 12 months, up to 24 months in the natural sciences) and Senior Fellowships for established academics (duration of stay: 3–12 months). The selection process will be competitive and fellows will be chosen exclusively on their academic merits by a purely external selection committee. Personal qualifications with regard to international expertise, leadership skills and interdisciplinary interest will also be taken into account during the evaluation of the applications.
Academics from the University of Freiburg are urged to speak to their international cooperation partners and encourage them to apply.
Application deadline: September 30, 2015
Start of academic stays in Freiburg: from September 2016
