2018 Campus France PRESTIGE Postdoctoral Research International Fellowships, France

Applications are invited for PRESTIGE Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in France for the year which is open all year round for applicants worldwide. The programme is open to any scientific field and research topic, as far as in compliance with EU ethics regulation and rules.PRESTIGE aims at fostering the international mobility of post-doc researchers.

Three mobility schemes are available:

  • Incoming, allowing foreign or French researchers complying with the Marie Curie Actions mobility rules to carry out their post-doctoral research work in France;
  • Outgoing, for researchers already working in French research institutions and universities (French citizens or other nationalities) wishing to carry out a post-doctoral research project in another country
  • Re-integration, targeted at nationals of the EU Member States or Associated Countries working in research for at least 3 years in another Third Country to come to France to further develop their career.

Course Level: Fellowships are available to pursue postdoctoral programme.

Study Subject: PRESTIGE is open to all scientific fields provided that each proposed research project is in compliance with the EU ethics rules. Co-financing partners may, however, limit the eligible scientific fields, according to their own prioritized thematic areas.

Scholarship Award: PRESTIGE is a co-financing programme, funding about 1/3 of the post-doc fellow’s living, mobility and research allowance, whiles the remaining 2/3 are financed by another partner, either public or private. PRESTIGE should help to strengthen and broaden various existing mobility initiatives, thus making both France and the European Research Area (ERA) more attractive to researchers.

Minimum Financial Conditions for Prestige Fellows

Incoming Outgoing Re-integration
Living allowance 37000 €/year 12000 €/year 40000 €/year
Research costs 2000 €/year 4720 €/year
Mobility costs 2000 €/year 10000 €/year 2800 €/year
Total 41000 €/year 22000 €/year* 47520 €/year

* The living allowance for Outgoing mobility is intended as amount paid in addition to the regular salary, as this scheme is for researchers who are already employees of French institutions

EU co-funding:

Researchers will be partly financed through PRESTIGE by a EU grant (roughly 1/3 of the salary) paid by Campus France to the host or sending institutions which commit themselves to finance the remaining amount. Please note that the actual grant amount will be prorated depending on the duration of the mobility.

Their proposals must fulfill all of the below-mentioned eligibility criteria if they are to be retained for evaluation. These criteria will be rigorously applied. A proposal can be declared ineligible, at any time, if it becomes clear that it does not meet the requirements.

  • For the Re-integration scheme: Member State or Associated Country nationals having carried out research in another Third Country for at least 3 years, to establish them in a longer-term career in France after this transnational mobility period;
  • Proposals must be complete and prepared in cooperation with a host institution. A letter of recommendation of the host organization, having checked the relevance of the proposal in terms of priorities (economic, regional, national), must be joined to the proposal.

Research topics are to be previously defined after a discussion between the host research unit/laboratory and the applicant. In the fellowship scheme, the choice of research topics and destination is free but may depend on regional priorities and on host organizations’ capabilities to ensure appropriate conditions of research.

A prior declaration signed by both the applicant and the host research unit/laboratory will have to be joined to the application declaring that research works to be undertaken will be in line with the ethical rules of the FP7 programme.

Freigeist Fellowships for International Researchers in Germany, 2018

Volkswagen Foundation is offering fellowship for international young researchers in all disciplines. Ten to fifteen fellowships for researchers will be awarded per year.The Freigeist funding initiative provides an opportunity for outstandingly qualified, creative and independent early career researchers to conduct their own research. It aims to encourage exceptional research personalities to embark on visionary, risk-taking research projects at the intersections between established fields of research.

The ‘Freigeist’ initiative builds upon the previous funding scheme for junior research groups and the Dilthey- and Schumpeter Fellowships which were terminated recently.

Their doctorate must have been obtained not longer than five years previously (with regard to the date of the defense relative to the deadline of the initiative).

Course Level: Fellowships are available for pursuing research programme at the university or research institution in Germany.

Study Subject(s): The ‘Freigeist’ scheme is deliberately open to all disciplines and topics.

Number of Awards: Ten to fifteen fellowships will be awarded per year.

Scholarship Award: Ten to fifteen fellowships will be awarded per year. The initial funding period is five years; depending on the field of research and career experience, projects in a total amount of up to 1,000,000 Euro can be applied for:

  • The Fellow’s position (salary scale TV-L 14, comparable to similar junior research group leaders)
  • Positions for scientific personnel (doctoral students, PostDocs)
  • Non-personnel costs relevant to the project (e. g. consumables, travel expenses, equipment)
    Important:
  • The Foundations does not grant any overheads.
  • In case the maximum amount of funding has not been fully taken up with the initial application, additional funds (so called modules) can be applied for during the course of the Fellowship to provide flexible support (e. g. for personnel, resources, sojourns abroad, cooperation measures, translations, workshops, stays at institutions representing other research fields). Applications for these modules should be submitted – if possible – within the context of annual reporting on the funded project.
  • A second funding period of up to three years may be provided. This requires a positive evaluation (by the Foundation), generally at the end of the fourth year, and a clear perspective for a permanent position for the Fellow at the host institution. The maximum funding for this second period amounts up to 400,000 Euro.

Scholarship can be taken in Germany

Eligibility: Anyone can apply who identifies with the goals of a ‘Freigeist’ Fellowship and whose proposed research project fits in with the aims pursued by the Freigeist initiative. Candidates must, however, conform to the following conditions:

  • Their doctorate must have been obtained not longer than five years previously (with regard to the date of the defense relative to the deadline of the initiative).
  • The Fellowship must from the outset be integrated within a university or an extra-mural research institution in Germany.
  • Candidates must already have changed their academic environment and moved to a new location – at the latest when starting the Fellowship. A return to the working context of the doctorate will only be accepted under exceptional circumstances.
  • A previously completed research sojourn abroad, at the latest integrated into the proposed research project.

Nationality: The funding scheme is open to early-stage researchers of all nationalities. 

College Admission Requirement

Entrance Requirement: Their doctorate must have been obtained not longer than five years previously (with regard to the date of the defense relative to the deadline of the initiative).

Test Requirement: No

English Language Requirements: Applicants from outside the home country will often need to meet specific English language/other language requirements in order to be able to study there.

International Fellowship

How to Apply: For each of the Foundation’s funding initiatives there is a separate sheet entitled ‘Information for Applicants’, in which you will find details of the framework conditions and requirements for content and form. Here you will also find practical tips on how to submit your application. Should you still have queries, you can always refer to the contact person named in these sheets. For information with regard to project proposals for the funding initiative ‘Off the Beaten Track’, you should contact the persons responsible for the corresponding disciplinary field. Applications must be filed electronically via the electronic application system.

Online Application

Application Deadline:  The next deadlines for applications is October 12, 2018.
