Marie Heim-Vögtlin Programme (SNSF)

To increase the number of women in research, the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) annually awards a limited number of Marie Heim-Vögtlin* (MHV) subsidies.

MHV subsidies are aimed for doctoral and postdoctoral candidates within all disciplines funded by the SNSF and aim to facilitate the recipients research project. The MHV subsidies support the integration in a host institution at a Swiss University or ETH. The MHV Programme preferable supports where no other means of such re-integration exist.
In order to achieve sustained re-integration, the host institution has to provide not only a written declaration of acceptance and job confirmation but also a continuing financial commitment following expiration of the MHV subsidy (cf. MHV rules, article 4/2).

Deadline : August 2nd
