SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships are aimed at highly qualified researchers who aspire to a permanent professorship. Eccellenza supports them in achieving their goal by allowing them to lead a generously funded research project as an assistant professor with their team at a Swiss higher education institution.
Please consult the Eccellenza Regulations to determine your formal eligibility.
Applicants must have a proven record of at least two years’ research activity at a Swiss higher education research centre, or they must be Swiss nationals or have a Swiss higher education degree. They have never held a professorship position nor is such a position foreseen.
Eccellenza covers the grantee’s salary at the local rates applicable to assistant professorships and project funds of up to CHF 1,000,000 for a five-year period.
The time periods are calculated on the basis of the relevant submission deadline for Eccellenza applications.
