100 Postdoc positions (all disciplines) in european countries, ERCIM Alain Bensoussan Fellowship Programme

The “ERCIM Alain Bensoussan Fellowship Programme” was supported by the FP7 Marie Curie Actions – People, Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (COFUND) of the European Commission. More than 150 fellowships were granted under the Programme.

Two types of contracts

The fellows are appointed for 12 months either by a stipend (an agreement for a research training programme) or a working contract. The type of contract and the monthly allowance (for stipends) or salary (for working contracts) depend on the hosting institute (see table above).

It should be noted that the stipend (Fellowship Agreement) does not constitute a contract of employment. As such, no contributions are made, on behalf of the fellow, in respect of unemployment insurance or either state or private retirement schemes. The fellow will not, therefore, be entitled to any unemployment or retirement benefits under the Fellowship Agreement.

For the entire period of 12 months, the fellow will receive a monthly allowance or salary (depending on the type of contract) which may vary depending on the country. Costs for travelling to and from the institutes will be paid under conditions determined by the contract.

This allowance/salary will be transferred to the fellow’s personal bank account.

Who can apply?

The Fellowships are available for PhD holders from all over the world.

What is the duration?

Fellowships are of a 12 months duration, spent in one of the ERCIM institutes.

How to apply?

Only online applications are accepted.

Next deadline for application: 30 Sep 2015


The topics focus on the ERCIM institutes’ scientific fields of competence.

The categories used for the informatics part of the ERCIM table of competences are the top two levels of the internationally accepted ACM Computing Classification System [1998 Version].

Where are the fellows hosted?

Only ERCIM members can host fellows. For information about the possible hosting institutes, see “participating ERCIM members“. For more details, see the homepages of the individual members, or contact the national contact for the ERCIM Fellowship Programme for a specific institute.

When an ERCIM member is a consortium (such as CRCIM, SpaRCIM) the hosting institute might be any of the consortium’s members.

When an ERCIM Member is a funding organisation (FWO/FNRS for Belgium), the hosting institute might be any of their affiliates.
Fellowships are proposed according to the needs of the member institutes and the available funding.

See also the list of current and former fellows.

What are the conditions?

  • have obtained a PhD degree during the last 8 years (prior to the application deadline) or be in the last year of the thesis work with an outstanding academic record
  • be fluent in English
  • be discharged or get deferment from military service
  • the fellowship is restricted to two terms (one reselection possible)
  • have completed the PhD before starting the grant (a proof will be requested before your arrival).

We encourage not only researchers from academic institutions to apply, but also scientists working in industry.

In order to encourage mobility:

  • a member institute will not be eligible to host a candidate of the same nationality.
  • a candidate cannot be hosted by a member institute, if by the start of the fellowship, he or she has already been working for this institute (including phd or postdoc studies) for a total of 6 months or more, during the last 3 years.
