The fellowship is funded from FEM. It includes a salary of 20.000 Euro per year (before taxes), which is provided for 3 years with the possibility to extend it for 1 more year, pending the approval of the Tutor Committee. Students will also benefit of reimbursement for travelling to the partner institution. Note that the FEM does not handle requests for registration as PhD student. FEM is a research Foundation and cannot issue the PhD degree. Therefore successful candidates will have to register as PhD student with the University partner of the project or with another University. Fellow students will have 1 year from when the fellowships starts to register as PhD students. If at the end of the first year the selected candidate is not yet registered as PhD student, the fellowship will stop.
The applicants must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent from a University in a field relevant to the project topic.
