FRIAS 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 (completed PhD plus initial – one to six years - of post-doctoral experience; duration of stay: 12 months) and Senior Fellowships for established academics (duration of stay: 3–10 months). All fellowships will be awarded to individuals with challenging and innovative research projects of high top academic quality through a highly competitive, strictly merit-based selection process. The all-important selection criteria are the academic excellence of both the applicant and the project proposal.
Academics from the University of Freiburg are urged to speak to their international cooperation partners and encourage them to apply.
Application deadline: September 15, 2016
Start of academic stays in Freiburg: from September 2017
