The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) is offering Postdoctoral Fellowships for Overseas Researchers to citizens and permanent residents of Switzerland, who are currently affiliated to a Swiss institution. All fields of the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences are included under the programme.
To provide opportunities for excellent postdoctoral researchers from other countries to conduct, under the guidance of their hosts, cooperative research with leading research groups in universities and other Japanese institutions. The program allows such researchers to advance their own research while contributing to the progress of research in Japan and the counterpart countries.
Fellowships last from 12 up to 24 months and must start between 1 July and 30 November 2022.
For a number of years, the SNSF has acted as the nomination body for the Postdoctoral Fellowships of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). In 2022, the SNSF can propose two researchers to the JSPS.
