The IST-BRIDGE program at IST Austria offers fully funded (two-year) postdoctoral fellowships for highly qualified candidates who have completed or will soon complete their PhD or equivalent in the natural or computer sciences, mathematics or any related discipline.
IST-BRIDGE postdocs’ careers will be enhanced by a flexible ‘career-tracks’ training program and optional non-academic secondments, placements in IST Austria research support units, and academic secondments to outstanding international BRIDGE Network partners.
Benefits of an IST-BRIDGE fellowship include an international, interdisciplinary, and intersectoral fellowship program; 2-year, fully funded postdoctoral position (optional extensions for placements/secondments); profiled competency training: 4 flexible ‘career-tracks’; optional BRIDGE placements and secondments; ‘Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow’ title – internationally recognized mark of research excellence.
Eligibility: all research fields supported at IST Austria will be eligible; at the date of the deadline, applicants must hold a PhD (or equivalent) or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience and anticipate the completion of their PhD degree before the start of their fellowship (which should not be later than ~7 months post-deadline – see guide for applicants); a fellowship contract will not be issued until a copy of the diploma/proof of successful defense is provided; applicants cannot have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Austria for more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately prior to the call deadline; researchers already employed at IST Austria at the call deadline are not eligible to apply.
IST-BRIDGE will recruit 60 fellows over 5 globally-advertised calls (approximately 12 per call).
