EUTOPIA-SIF Post Doctoral 76 Fellowships Call 2021

The EUTOPIA European University is pleased to announce the opening of 20 post-doctoral fellowships, within the EUTOPIA Science and Innovation Fellowships Programme (EUTOPIA-SIF). 

The EUTOPIA Science and Innovation Fellowship Programme has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement n. 945380, for a total number of 76 post-doctoral fellowships, over 4 years, and a budget of 10,2M€, of which 5,6M€ financed by the European Union and 4,6M€ by the EUTOPIA partner universities. The EUTOPIA-SIF programme is coordinated by CY Cergy Paris Université.

The aim of the EUTOPIA-SIF programme is to enhance the research potential and career perspectives of outstanding young researchers from around the world.

EUTOPIA-SIF post-doctoral fellows will be recruited by one of the EUTOPIA universities (host university) on the basis of an individual research project and the quality of their academic profile for a 24-month post-doctoral contract with highly attractive conditions. The selected candidates from the 2020/21 call will start their positions in September 2021.

EUTOPIA-SIF fellowships offer the opportunity to high-profile young researchers to develop their own research project in the stimulating academic environment of the EUTOPIA Alliance. Extensive research mobility is integral to the fellowships with two compulsory secondment periods: one at another EUTOPIA university (co-host university) and one with an external academic or non-academic partner institution with the aim of fostering the fellows’ entrepreneurial spirit, tangible research impact and innovation. Furthermore, fellows will access a rich training programme, career guidance and academic supervision.

EUTOPIA-SIF fellows will prove, through their research project, their capacity to address major social challenges in at least one of the five Key Research Areas:

  1. Materials engineering: including advanced analytical science, photonics, new material science, quantum technology
  2. Data & Intelligence: including artificial intelligence, complexity, information-systems engineering
  3. Health: including immunology and antibacterial resistance, cancer, ageing, reproductive health, neurosciences
  4. Sustainability: including energy, circular economy, mobility, urban planning, material heritage, water management
  5. Welfare & Inclusion: including business management and finance, governance, ethics, inequality, law and demography

As academic experts following an interdisciplinary approach, fellows will address questions that are central to understanding and shaping the future of our planet, the technologies that shape our lives and the societies we will live in. Interdisciplinary interactions are particularly encouraged within the EUTOPIA-SIF programme, built on the principle that major scientific and societal challenges can only be solved by the collaboration of experts from different areas. Applications from fellows in the Arts and Humanities are welcomed in connection with the above-mentioned Key research areas.
