Carlsberg Foundation Young Researcher Fellowships

Application guidelines

Deadline:

1 October at 4 pm.

The Carlsberg Foundation offers a number of one-to-three-year grants for outstanding newly appointed associate professors or tenure-track assistant professors with international experience to establish an independent research group or research environment, including the acquisition of research infrastructure (equipment, register data, etc.) and the formation of national/international networks.

At the time of application, the applicant cannot be more than two years into his/her tenured position; assistant professors on tenure track are also eligible. Any periods of leave will be accepted as extensions of this time limit (maternity leave, parental leave, sick or family care leave, military service, humanitarian aid work, etc.).

The maximum grant amount is DKK 4,500,000.
