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

As part of the Carlsberg Foundation’s new strategy, the Foundation wishes to contribute to an improved gender balance in Danish research. Consequently, the Foundation has decided that when a grant holder accepts a Young Researcher Fellowship, the grant holder must agree to ensure gender balance amongst PhD students and postdocs employed to the research project. The Foundation urges grant holders to ensure that both genders are represented when receiving applications for PhD and postdoc positions.

At the time of application, the applicant cannot be more than two years into her/his tenured associate professorship position. Any periods of leave will be accepted as extensions of this time limit (maternity leave, paternity leave, family care leave, illness, military service, etc.). Exact employment date must therefore be specified in the CV.

The applicant can apply for up to DKK 5 million.

The budget may cover salaries for postdocs and PhD students, and it is required that enrolment of the PhD students at a Danish 'PhD graduate school' is guaranteed.

The budget may also include up to a total of three months of salary for the main applicant for project management.
