ERCIM Fellowship

    ERCIM, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics, offers fellowships for PhD holders from all over the world.

    Topics cover most disciplines in Computer Science, Information Technology, and Applied Mathematics.


    • have obtained a PhD degree during the last 8 years (prior to the application deadline) or be in the last year of the thesis work with an outstanding academic record
    • be fluent in English
    • be discharged or get deferment from military service
    • the fellowship is restricted to two terms (one reselection possible)
    • have completed the PhD before starting the grant (a proof will be requested).

    We encourage not only researchers from academic institutions to apply, but also scientists working in industry.

    In order to encourage mobility:

    • a member institute will not be eligible to host a candidate of the same nationality.
    • a candidate cannot be hosted by a member institute, if by the start of the fellowship, he or she has already worked in this institute for a total of 6 months or more, during the last 3 years.
