Postdoctoral Grants at the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research

Posted in Funding opportunities, Research Fellowships by Pippa on January 15, 2009

The purpose of the postdoctoral grants is to give younger, recently graduated researchers the possibility to continue their research career after obtaining their Ph.D.s. A postdoctoral grant amounts to SEK680,000 per year, including overhead. The grant is awarded for two years and is supposed to cover a full-time salary. The receiver of a postdoctoral grant is allowed to develop his or her research freely within the area determined in the research plan. The grant should be administered by a Swedish university or equivalent.

Scholars who have obtained their Ph.D.s between 1 January and 31 December, 2008, are eligible to apply for this postdoctoral grant. The subject of the dissertation and research plan of the applicant should lie within FAS’ areas of responsibility.

For more information about FAS’ areas of responsibility, please refer to: http://www.fas.se
