CfA: NCCR Visiting Fellowships

The National Center of Competence in Research nccr – on the move aims to enhance the understanding of contemporary migration patterns. Connecting disciplines, the NCCR brings together research projects from the social sciences, economics and law. Managed from the University of Neuchatel, the network comprises eight universities in Switzerland.

The nccr – on the move wants to encourage the network members to link up with research teams abroad. For this purpose it is setting up short-term visiting fellowship schemes which can be used for both incoming and outgoing fellows.

The “outgoing” fellowship scheme is aimed at nccr – on the move PostDocs and doctoral students who wish to go abroad for a maximum of five months. The NCCR contributes a maximum amount of CHF 10,000 towards the stay abroad, whereby the maximum monthly installment is set at CHF 3,000. The grant also covers the cost of an outward and return journey to the host institution. We ask the nccr – on the move fellows seeking to go abroad for six months or more to apply for the official SNSF NCCR Mobility Grants, which have been created for NCCR collaborators wishing to go abroad. The Network Office can provide you with the documentation, further information and assistance in applying for these grants.

The “incoming” fellowship scheme can be used to host senior (PostDoc) and junior (PreDoc) researchers from abroad who wish to collaborate with nccr – on the move researchers in Switzerland for a duration of two to three months. The monthly stipend is based on a lump-sum amount for staying in Switzerland, which amounts to CHF 3,000 per month for applicants from developed countries and CHF 3,500 for applicants from developing countries. In addition, one roundtrip from the place of residence to the host university is paid. Travel related to nccr – on the move events in Switzerland is reimbursed upon presentation of receipts.
