International Postdoc Grant
The purpose of the grant is to give recently qualified researchers with a doctoral degree from a Swedish university the opportunity to expand their networks and their competences by working abroad under secure employment terms.
Costs and grant amounts
The grant is awarded in a standard amount of 1 050 000 SEK per year, of which 900 000 SEK is for your salary costs and 150 000 SEK for research expenses relating to your stay and the research you will be carrying out (such as consumables, travel including stays at research sites and publication costs). The grant amount includes cover of indirect costs. The standard amount relating to salary costs also includes social security contributions. The grant may not be used for bursaries.
The Swedish Research Council assumes that the administrating organisation, as the employer responsible, will cover any costs in excess of the standard amount received.
The grant period is 18-36 months, starting from 1 January 2018. The first payment will be made during January 2018 at the earliest.
A condition of the grant is that at least two thirds of the grant period is spent abroad. This time may, however, be divided up into several shorter periods. The mobility condition shall be confirmed by means of a letter of invitation from the foreign host university or corresponding and a description and justification of your choice of this institution. Both of these must cover the period stated in the application.
