Grants for young researchers who want to have an expert scientific training and to develop their academic career in Switzerland.

The SNSF launched this scheme on the government's behalf following Switzerland's non-association to Horizon Europe. It is aimed at researchers who intended to apply for a fellowship under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships Actions (MSCA).

This funding scheme will offer applicants with a PhD and no more than eight years of postdoctoral experience a position at a non-commercial research institution in Switzerland for 12-24 months.

The grant includes the postdoctoral fellow’s salary as well as social security contributions and contributions to research and conference costs.
