SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships

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.

The SNSF will merge the two funding instruments PRIMA and Eccellenza to create a new scheme called SNSF Professorial Fellowships. Further information can be found here.
