École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPDL)
The EPFL Fellows international postdoctoral fellowship programme will fund 24 fellowships of a maximum duration of 24 months each year/call.
The next call will be launched on 1 July 2016 and the deadline for the submission of applications is 1 October 2016 (17:00 hr CET).
EPFL Fellows fellowships may be held in any scientific discipline within the EPFL.
Applications should be made jointly with the Fellow’s mentor, a senior scientist at EPFL. EPFL Fellows conduct their own research within the framework of the proposed project.
The EPFL Fellows fellowships can only be carried out in Switzerland, at the EPFL campus in Lausanne, Neuchâtel, Valais or Fribourg.
Applications will be assessed against criteria addressing the candidate’s ability and commitment to research, the quality of the proposed research project as well as the synergy between the research proposed and the host laboratory chosen by the candidate, and the impact on the career advancement of the candidate. Each candidate’s merits will be judged quantitatively as well as qualitatively. Detailed information on the evaluation criteria is also given in the document ’Rules and Regulations for EPFL Fellows’.
The duration of an EPFL Fellows fellowship is 24 months and cannot be prolonged. Employment after the initially granted time must be financed from other sources.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 291771 (call 2013 and 2014) and from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation under grant agreement 665667 (call 2015 and 2016).
