Junior fellows are early-career researchers working in academic or artistic disciplines (including all subjects offered at Zurich University of the Arts) at postdoc or equivalent level. To be eligible, you will need a doctorate in an academic discipline or a master’s degree from an art school. The degree should not be older than 5 years at the time the Fellowship begins. Junior fellowships are awarded to candidates who do not have a permanent academic position, but do have a proven track record.
Duration and start date
Junior fellows spend ten months at the Collegium Helveticum, generally starting on 1 September. A different start date must be explained in the application.
Junior fellows receive a grant in the form of a full-salaried post at ETH Zurich for the duration of the fellowship. The grant is paid through monthly salary payments. The amount is based on the ETH Zurich postdoc salary rates. Information on statutory deductions can be found here.
