Funding Opportunities

Indication of interest & SOS support for applications

Support Office, Science kindly asks researchers to indicate their interest in certain calls, where the Faculty of Science has a high rate of applications. Up to these specific calls, many researchers need SOS support almost simultaneously. Information on planned applications will help SOS to organize and provide service and support to the researchers in the best possible way.

Two and a half months prior to larger calls, SOS will ask researchers to inform us if they are planning to apply. Candidates are requested to contact SOS or the department heads two months prior to the deadline in question.

In case only budget assistance is needed, SOS must be contacted in this relation no later than 10 working days prior to deadline.

The following terms apply for all other applications and budgets:
- Quality and quantity of application support is dependent on time to deadline.
- Budgets must be submitted for SOS review and the subsequent approval by FSØ 10 working days before application deadline.

Generally, we recommend that candidates who consider applying for major individual grants contact us well ahead of the deadline, in case they need further dialogue concerning the preparation of the application.

SDU eScience centre
Call for PhD projects

The SDU eScience centre calls for proposal of PhD projects relevant for escience. The call is directed to all potential supervisors of PhD students at the Faculty of Science. The centre offers one third co-finance for PhD positions at the Faculty of Science, which can be cumulated with a possible 1 third co-financing from the departments per PhD position. However, at least one third of the PhD position should be financed by external funding.

No deadline: This call is open-ended, i.e. there is no deadline for submitting your application. The applications received will be evaluated periodically by the eScience centre board members.

The Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation (HTF)
Industrial postdoc

The industrial postdoc program is targeting talented researchers in the beginning of their career, i.e. within a maximum of three years (excl. maternity/paternity leave) after obtaining the PhD degree.

Industrial postdoc projects are individual projects of 1-3 years duration applied for by the postdoc candidate. The project is financed by the parties according to the Foundation’s 1-2-3 model based on the principle that all parties contribute their own share of co-funding. In addition to this, the company and the research institution each provide a mentor, who acts as a sparring partner for the industrial postdoc.

Deadline: Wednesday 26 Marts 2014 at noon.

Starting Grant

ERC Starting Grants are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators at the career stage at which they are starting their own independent research team or programme. This action is open to researchers of any nationality who intend to conduct their research activity in any Member State or Associated Country.

Deadline: Tuesday March 25 at 5PM, Brussels local time.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie
Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE)

The RISE scheme will promote international and inter-sector collaboration through research and innovation staff exchanges, and sharing of knowledge and ideas from research to market (and vice-versa) for the advancement of science and the development of innovation.
The scheme fosters a shared culture of research and innovation that welcomes and rewards creativity and entrepreneurship and helps to turn creative ideas into innovative products, services or processes.

Deadline: Thursday 24 April at 5PM, Brussels local time
