ETH Zurich Postdoctoral Fellowships

The ETH Zurich Postdoctoral Fellowship programme (ETH Fellows) supports incoming postdoctoral researchers at ETH Zurich. The programme is intended to foster young researchers who have already demonstrated scientific excellence in the early stages of their careers.

Who should apply?

The fellowships are intended as early support towards academic independence, hence priority will be given to applicants who propose their own projects. Thus, it is important that applicants come up with their own ideas and draft the application themselves, and that the applicant and mentor have not closely collaborated prior to the fellowship.

Applications have to be made jointly by the candidate and the potential host, who must be an ETH Zurich professor and willing to act as the mentor of the fellow. A professor may only submit one candidate in each evaluation round. There must be convincing synergies between the host (group) and the ETH Fellow.

Why apply for the ETH Zurich Postdoctoral Fellowship?

The fellowship covers the fellow’s salary totalling CHF 215,200. They include 15.0% social security contributions to be paid by ETH Zurich.

ETH Fellows are also entitled to CHF 10,000 per year for research expenses, including travel/mobility allowances and research cost contributions. The travel and research costs budget may not be used to cover salary costs and vice versa.

The duration of an ETH Fellowship is two years and cannot be prolonged. The fellowship is competitive, with only a limited number of fellowships available each year. The success rate was about 25% in the last rounds.
