Dear Researchers

We are pleased to inform you that the 8th Sciex* Call is now launched!

This call is open to
Estonian<http://www.crus.ch/information-programme/sciex-nms-ch/sciex-nms-ch-estonia.html>-, Hungarian<http://www.crus.ch/information-programme/sciex-nms-ch/sciex-nms-ch-hungary.html>-, Latvian-<http://www.crus.ch/information-programme/sciex-nms-ch/sciex-nms-ch-latvia.html>, Lithuanian-<http://www.crus.ch/information-programme/sciex-nms-ch/sciex-nms-ch-lithuania.html> and Slovakian<http://www.crus.ch/information-programme/sciex-nms-ch/sciex-nms-ch-slovak-republic.html>- Swiss Teams

Proposal submission deadline: April 1st 2013
Selection Meeting: End of August 2013
Earliest start of Fellowships around the end of 2013  beginning of 2014.

Please note that two important changes were introduced:

1.      Introduction of personal requirements

In order to better adapt the required academic profiles of the candidates to the target group of the Sciex Programme - who are "promising Junior Researchers, who (1) aim at attaining a PhD Degree or (2) pursue doctoral research, normally with the intention to qualify for professorship" - the Steering Committee has finally decided to introduce the following personal requirements in the application rules:

a)     for a doctoral fellowship, start of the fellowship at the earliest 1 year after obtaining the master's degree;

b)     for a postdoctoral fellowship, start of the fellowship at the latest 5 years after obtaining the doctorate.

The date of the examination shall be the decisive date.

2.      Follow-up projects and extensions no longer allowed

The Steering Committee has also decided that Doctoral Candidates and/or PostDocs, who were already granted a Sciex Fellowship, do not have the possibility to apply a second time for a Sciex funding. This rule applies exclusively to the Fellows (the Mentors themselves are of course not concerned).

Furthermore, ongoing projects cannot be extended any more.

Best regards,
Sciex Zurich
