Postdoctoral Transition Grants


Please note the deadline for application has passed.
The next call will be published at the beginning of the summer 2018.
Below you’ll find information from the last call. 

The aim of the Postdoctoral Transition Grants for Internationalisation programme is to support promising young researchers in Sweden after a postdoc period (which included at least one year abroad) in order to maintain and further develop their international network early in their careers.

The programme targets further development of the international relations after the postdoc period. It does thus not fund traditional postdoc periods abroad. Projects may last for up to three years. The funds are to be used for mobility, stays abroad or foreign researcher’s stays in Sweden. Applicants should have obtained their PhD as well as be employed and active at a Swedish university. At the planned start of the project a maximum of three years should have passed since the applicant completed a postdoc period (of at least one year) outside of Sweden. Applicants must have research funding, either from the university or externally. The same rules regarding research funding applies to the partner. The main partner must be outside the EU/EFTA. Applicants may have on-going projects in the Initiation Grants programme, but otherwise there must not be any on-going STINT projects.

Applications will be assessed by experts, focusing on how the proposed international partnership fulfils the following three criteria: 1) contribution to the educational establishments’ internationalisation, 2) scientific quality and novelty and 3) planning and support. Please note that only scientific results from the last five years are taken into consideration for the assessment. This call closes at 15:00 CET, September 28th, 2017.

Please read the complete call text.

The electronic application system will open for Postdoctoral Transition Grants no later than the end of July.
