Not eligible for funding are assistant professors, externally funded assistant professors, associate professors, and full professors.
What will be funded?
- The applicant’s salary
- The salary of a co-worker (for example, a PhD student)
- Materials (on a limited scale)
The maximum duration of project funding depends on the faculty at which the project is carried out.
