The programme is open for postdoctoral researchers from all over the world. Fellowships are of twelve months duration (with the possibility to extend up to 24 months) to be spent in one ERCIM member institute.


Topics cover most disciplines in Computer Science, Information and Communication Technology, and Applied Mathematics.

Terms and conditions

Fellows are appointed for 12-months either by a stipend (an agreement for a research training programme) or a working contract. The type of contract and the monthly allowance (for stipends) or salary (for working contracts) depends on the hosting institute.

In order to encourage mobility: 

  • an ERCIM member institute will not be eligible to host a candidate of the same nationality
  • a candidate cannot be hosted by a member institute, if by the start of the fellowship, he or she has already been working for this institute (including PhD or postdoc studies) for a total of 6 months or more, during the last 3 years.
