Information for SNF Ambizione and Professorship applicants

The Department of Psychology at the University of Fribourg welcomes and supports applications for the Ambizione, PRIMA and Eccellenza schemes of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).

We have an internal reviewing procedure to decide which applicants we would like to offer our full support. We thus invite you to express your interest to apply for one of those SNF schemes, by sending the title of your project, an abstract and your CV to the Head of Department:

The deadlines are:

  • the 1st of September for Ambizione/PRIMA
  • the 1st of December for Eccellenza.

Applications submitted after these deadlines will not be considered for the ongoing round.

We will then organize with all the possible candidates a 20 minute project presentation followed by a 30 minute discussion, in September / October for the Ambizione scheme, and in December / January for the SNF Professorship scheme. We will communicate our decision on whether or not to support your project shortly after this interview.

In the meantime, please feel free to contact the staff members of our department you would like to collaborate with, or receive support from to have informal information and discussions.
