Postdoc fellowships

Postdoc fellowships are part of the Digital Futures mobility program. With this program of funding, we aim to support talented early-career researchers in pursuing their research ideas in a new research group. The network, facilities and development opportunities provided through the program are carefully configured to boost the postdoc fellows’ future careers. The call is targeted towards applicants three years after the completion of their doctorate degree and is primarily aimed at bringing new talent to the Digital Futures environment.
