Society in Science – The Branco Weiss Fellowship

E-mail Stampa PDF
Society in Science – The Branco Weiss Fellowship is a unique postdoc program awarding young researchers around the world with a generous personal research grant, giving them the freedom to work on whatever topic they choose anywhere in the world, for up to five years.

This research fellowship is designed to support postdoctoral researchers after their PhD and before their first faculty appointment. Those in current postdoctoral positions are also eligible. Ideally, fellows pursue unconventional projects in new areas of science, engineering and social sciences.

The Society in Science fellowship program was initiated and financed by the Swiss entrepreneur Dr. Branco Weiss, who passed away in October 2010. The program belongs to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH).

Eligibility

The ideal applicant has the competencies to design a surprisingly novel and scientifically rigorous research project which blazes new trails, profiting from the freedom uniquely offered by the fellowship.

You are eligible if:

  • You officially hold a PhD on February 1, 2013
  • Your project departs from the mainstream of research in your discipline
  • You have a record of outstanding scientific achievement
  • You demonstrate in the proposal a willingness to engage in a dialogue on relevant social, cultural, political or economic issues across the frontiers of your particular discipline

Please do not be disheartened if you have applied before and were not selected, you are welcome to apply again.

Your application will not be forwarded for evaluation if:

  • You have not officially completed a PhD by February 1, 2013
  • Your PhD was awarded more than five years ago, as of February 1, 2013
  • You already have a faculty-equivalent position (e.g. assistant professor, lecturer)

Duration

The five year fellowship is awarded in two installments.

1. The pioneer phase – the first two years of research

2. The exploitation phase – the remaining three years

At the end of the pioneer phase a review is conducted. This evaluates the project, its continued originality and the productivity of the fellow. The review is conducted in accordance with a list of requirements, communicated to fellows at the start of their research undertaking.

Funding

Society in Science fellows can expect financial support for up to five years as well as the opportunity to work at any academic institution of their choice throughout the world. The fellows belong to a diverse, dedicated and intellectually stimulating group. They meet at least once a year to present and discuss their research projects to scientific and public audiences.

The amount granted is CHF 100'000/year. It may be used to cover all legitimate cost of research (i.e. salary and/or equipment, travel cost, consumables, personnel etc.).

Timelines

Every proposal is rated on its merits by the Society in Science directorate and strategy committee. Short-listed candidates are invited for personal interviews, to be held in Zurich, Switzerland.

The following timeline applies for the 2013 fellowship intake:

  • February 1, 2013, 11.59 p.m. CET: final deadline for applications via the online form
  • April 2013: notification and invitation for a personal interview sent to final selection of candidates; notification sent to refused candidates
  • May 2013: interviewing of candidates with the directorate and the strategy committee in Zurich, Switzerland, and final selection of fellows
  • September 1 to December 31, 2013: fellows commence research projects
