Polish Academy of Sciences’ Individual Fellowships: Innovation & Creativity

Project description

Tailor-made two-year postdoctoral fellowships

The PASIFIC programme is a Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS) initiative offering tailor-made two-year postdoctoral fellowships to 50 experienced researchers, in 2 calls over 60 months, to help them further their career in the private or public sector. Global applicants will be expected to select their own research focus as well as their secondment institution from a network of branches in 7 cities and 76 research establishments that comprise the academy. The fellowships will be provided with a living and mobility stipend, and the institutions they choose to work in will be given a budget to offset research costs.


PASIFIC is a new Fellowship Programme, which will offer 50 prestigious two-year postdoctoral fellowships for incoming mobility. The Programme foresees the publication of two calls over the 60 months of its duration. It will provide excellent researchers from all over the world with research and complementary skills as well as transferable skills training of highest international standards that will help them to advance their scientific careers within a chosen sector, across academia, industry or a public sector. Each fellow will be hosted at one of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS), which is the largest and most important Polish research organisation research institutes.

The PASIFIC programme will be based on individual-driven mobility. The applicants will have freedom to choose their research area, supervisor, and secondment organisation, best suited to their individual research and career development. The programme is addressed to experienced researchers (PhD holders or researchers with at least 4 years of comparable experience). Applicants must comply with the MSCA mobility rules.
The fellowships offer attractive conditions and provide participating researchers with access to the facilities and resources of the network of PAS institutes. Successful candidates will be provided with all the necessities for developing their project in the vibrant and dynamic environment of PAS, allowing them to take the next step in building their research profile and plot the best course for their future career. Fellows will be offered a living and mobility allowance 4125 EUR monthly , a family allowance (300 EUR monthly). Additionally, a host institution will benefit from hosting the researchers and will receive a maximum budget of 60 000 EUR for research costs directly linked with the fellow’s work plan and indirect costs set as 20% direct costs of the project.
