Career funding for young researchers

The Institute of Physics accepts candidates for Ambizione, PRIMA, and SNSF Starting Grants. For an overview of these programs and the differences between them, please refer to the following overview presentation.

For all funding schemes, EPFL accepts both external and internal candidates. In the latter case, and if the project is granted, the total duration of a term employment (CDD) at EPFL cannot exceed 9 years. Candidates also need to check that they comply with the specific eligibility criteria of each grant (see the respective websites).

Please refer to the relevant pages below for the IPHYS application procedures, timelines and deadlines for each of the funding schemes. The next IPHYS deadlines are indicated below. These are strict deadlines and files received after the deadline will not be considered:

For 2022 the ERC Starting Grants and Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships are replaced by the SNSF Starting Grants.
