SNSF Ambizione and Eccellenza grants fund promising post-docs and assistant professors of any nationality and from any research field. These fellowships represent an excellent opportunity to attract talented post docs and outstanding researchers in your team.
Ambizione grants are aimed at postdocs who wish to conduct an independent project at a Swiss university. They are awarded to excellent researchers with at least 12 months of postdoctoral research activity at a different institution from that of the PhD. Submission possible up to 4 years from PhD.
The grant is aimed at outstanding researchers who have not yet obtained a professorship. It supports them in achieving their goal as leaders of a funded research project with their own team at a Swiss higher education institution. The applicant’s salary and project costs are covered for 5 years.
