Carlsberg Foundation Reintegration Fellowships

Application guidelines


1 October at 4 pm.

Two to three-year postdoctoral fellowships at Danish research institutions for postdoctoral fellows subsequent to an Internationalisation Fellowship from the Carlsberg Foundation or an otherwise funded research stay abroad. These fellowships are awarded to outstanding postdoctoral fellows who wish to establish independent research activities in Denmark after a research stay abroad.

Applicants with more than five years of experience since obtaining their PhD degree are not eligible. Any periods of leave will be accepted as extensions of this time limit (maternity leave, paternity leave, family care leave, illness, military service, etc.)

The Carlsberg Foundation Reintegration Fellowships are only awarded to applicants with previous strong connection to Danish research and a previous research stay abroad.

The Carlsberg Foundation covers general operating expenses with DKK 5,000 per month for experimental projects and DKK 2,500 per month for other projects.

Operating expenses are at the postdoctoral grant holder’s disposal to cover conferences, study trips, etc., and cannot be used to cover overhead costs and administration fees.
