Through funding from the Forschungskredit, the University of Zurich supports its junior scholars at the doctoral level (Candoc) and the postdoctoral level (Postdoc). As expected, nearly 8 million CHF can be allocated to approved projects in the year 2021.
Qualified postdoctoral students embarking on an academic career receive Postdoc funding to support them in carrying out or finishing a research project at the UZH. Primarily salary funds are granted in order to provide researchers with protected research time for their project.
Who can submit an application?
Postdocs and habilitation candidates (until conferral of habilitation) who are either employed by or plan a research project at the UZH.
