Pre-Announcenent for FCFP External Senior and Junior Fellowships 2018/19



Pre-Announcenent for Applications for FCFP External Senior and Junior Fellowships 2018/19 will open in September 2017!


This is a pre-announcement for the fifth call for applications for the “FRIAS COFUND Fellowship Programme” (FCFP). Outstanding international senior and junior researchers from all disciplines and nationalities are invited to apply for a fellowship stay in Freiburg. According to the EU mobility rule, 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.

Academics from the University of Freiburg are asked to inform their international cooperation partners about this opportunity and encourage them to apply!

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). About 25 Fellowships will be awarded, co-financed by the European Union’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND Programme. 

All fellowships will be awarded to individuals with challenging and innovative research projects of top academic quality through a highly competitive, strictly merit-based selection process. The all-important selection criteria are the academic excellence of both the project proposal and the applicant.
