Applications are invited for up to 80 Postdoctoral fellowships Programme open to applicants of all nationalities. The EuroTech Universities Alliance invites highly talented experienced researchers to submit interdisciplinary collaborative research project proposals for one of the fellowships provided by the EuroTechPostdoc Programme.

The EuroTechPostdoc Programme is a postdoctoral fellowship program for young experienced researchers who have already demonstrated excellence and potential in their field of research.

The EuroTech Universities Alliance is a strategic partnership of four leading European universities of science & technology: Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), and Technical University of Munich (TUM).

Together they are committed to finding technical solutions, which address the major challenges of modern society. Their intensive collaboration across research, education & innovation supports the EU’s goals of smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth.

In agreement with the Horizon 2020: 2020-2021 Work Programme for Marie Sk?odowska-Curie Actions, applicants to EuroTechPostdoc must be Experienced Researchers, namely they must, on the recruitment date, be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.

Applicants must be able to carry out full-time research during the fellowship period (parental leave, sick leave, military leave, and care leave are accepted).

Full-Time Equivalent Research Experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree entitling him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited, even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged.

Researchers may not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host university for more than twelve (12) months in the three (3) years immediately before the call deadline.

Time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention, compulsory national service, and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
