The SNSF Professorial Fellowships provide up to CHF 1.8 million in research funding, allowing grantees to lead an independent research project and team. It replaces the ERC Starting Grants and the SNSF Eccellenza Professorial and Prima Fellowships.
DEBES recognises the value of such grants to early-career researchers, and the important role that the department plays in providing support to successful SNSF-awarded candidates. DEBES therefore seeks to identify and sponsor pre-selected candidates to the SNSF Starting Grants. Applicants should have an outstanding track record, a wish to develop an independent research group within the Department of Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Studies, and research interests that will foster inter- and intradepartmental collaborations.
