The Equal Opportunities Office is pleased to announce that applications for the “Tremplin” grant in support of young female academics are now open!
Application deadline: September 6, 2020.
“Tremplin” grants aims to support women planning to pursue an academic career in offering them more opportunities to develop their scientific record (publication, fieldwork, scientific stay abroad, etc.). Candidates can apply for a grant of max. 25’000 CHF in order to be relieved of their administrative or teaching assignments for up to 12 months. From 2019 on, candidates can also apply for a grant in order to get technical support in their research activities (see changes in grant regulation art. 1 and 4).
Women holding non-tenured postdoc positions are eligible, specifically premières-assistantes, maîtres assistantes and assistant professors. Exceptionally, women holding other types of postdoc academic positions and showing evidence of their motivation in pursuing an academic career may also apply, provided their application responds to the grant’s objective to support women in developing their academic career and accessing professorship.
Applicants must hold a contract position at the University of Lausanne. Researchers under contract with the CHUV can also apply provided they are not eligible for CHUV-specific programmes.
