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.

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.
