SNSF Eccellenza is aimed at highly qualified young researchers who aspire to a permanent professorship. The Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships supports them in achieving their goal by allowing them to lead a generously funded research project as an assistant professor with their team at a Swiss higher education institution.
Eccellenza covers the grantee's salary at the local rates applicable to assistant professorships and project funds of up to 1 Mio. Swiss francs for a five-year period.
Confirmation of the higher education institution
To submit your application to the SNSF, you will need a written confirmation of the research institution, which consists of two separate letters:
|Letter 1:||Detailed confirmation signed by the head of the institute/department|
|Letter 2:||General confirmation of the Vice President Research|
In order for the general confirmation letter (letter 2) to be issued on time, the detailed confirmation (letter 1) must be sent to the UZH Grants Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 25 January 2022 at the latest.
Here you will find the template of the SNSF for letter 1 as a Word document (the German versions can be found on the German website).
