Additionally to project funding, there are several possibilities to ask for individual research grants which fund directly the salary.

Individual grants are provided by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) as well as by the European Union (Horizon 2020 MSCA and ERC grants) and are closely related to the stage of the careers of the researchers and of requirements of international mobility:


  1. Grants for PhD Students

  2. Grants for Post-doctoral researchers

  3. Grants for experienced researchers

Additional information and support services for researchers wishing to pursue their research careers in Europe are provided by EURAXESS.
