About the programme

With the Marie Skłodowska-Curie FRIAS COFUND Fellowship Programme about 25 fellows per year (juniors and seniors) from all disciplines are given the opportunity of spending three to twelve months working on their own research project at the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS), the international research college of the University of Freiburg

Through the programme, the institute supports internationally outstanding researchers with academically excellent and innovative research projects through individual fellowships. The university welcomes top researchers from abroad to give their input to its scholarly community, both in terms of research expertise and benefitting the university’s vibrant research culture and diversity. The determining selection criteria in the merit-based, internationally oriented, peer-review selection procedure are the academic excellence of both the applicant and the project proposalAll fellows funded by the FCFP distinguish themselves by qualifying as Marie S. Curie Fellows.

The Marie S. Curie FCFP is intended for current or future leaders in their fields. The fellowships are awarded through a highly competitive, strictly merit-based selection process (expected success rate: ~20% of eligible applications). Applications are invited from academics of all nationalities. Note, however, that applicants may not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies etc.) in Germany for more than 12 months in the three years immediately preceding the call deadline. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.

For the fellows, the programme offers outstanding research opportunities, not only in the research environment of an internationally highly competitive university, but also with the added advantage of being part of a community of fellows from different disciplines at FRIAS. Furthermore, they receive support for research mobility and become more familiar with the German and Upper Rhine research landscapes, thus enhancing their opportunities for continuing their career in the heart of Europe.

The University of Freiburg is one of the strongest research universities in Germany and member of LERU (the League of European Research Universities). FRIAS unites research in the humanities and social sciences, the natural and life sciences, engineering and medicine. Both the University of Freiburg and FRIAS take pride in a specific institutional culture that encourages and supports exchange and collaboration. It is the philosophy of FRIAS to support the career development of its fellows by integrating them into ambitious research communities here in Freiburg, as well as by supporting the international network of FRIAS fellows and alumni, such as through its FRIAS almuni club

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie FRIAS COFUND Fellowship Programme is co-financed by the European Union through the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, People, Co-funding of regional, national and international programs (COFUND) and the German state of Baden-Wurttemberg
