ERCIM Alain Bensoussan Fellowship Programme is supported by the FP7 Marie Curie Actions – People, Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (COFUND) of the European Commission. So far more than 150 fellowships/grants have been granted under the Programme.

The Marie Curie co-funding action aimed to increase the transnational mobility for training and career development of experienced researchers/students. The co-funding resulted in a considerable increase in the number of ERCIM fellows. The duration of the fellowships was extended and the fellows could benefit from one or two periods of twelve months spent in one or two ERCIM member institutes. Additionally, employment conditions became more flexible, with the option of signing a working contract instead of a stipend agreement in some of our institutions.

Eligibility

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

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 Apr 2016

Major topics/disciplines?

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) 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.

Key considerations:

  • 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.
