The federal government has mandated the SNSF to launch the SNSF Starting Grants. The SNSF Starting Grants are an integrative call for proposals which, as a transitional measure, covers both the ERC Starting Grants and the existing SNSF funding schemes Eccellenza and PRIMA. For this reason, there will be most probably no separate calls for Eccellenza, PRIMA or the future SNSF Professorial Fellowships in 2024.
The University treats SNSF Starting grantes equivalently to Assistant Professors without tenure track, and the Department of Chemistry preselects candidates in an interview round similar to the application process of an Assistant Professorship.
Unfortunately we can not consider any applications for 2024.
Grants for researchers who wish to conduct an independent scientific project and lead a research team in Switzerland.
