The annual call for research proposals under the Hertha Firnberg and Elise Richter programmes opens on 12 October 2020. The deadline for submissions is 11 December 2020 (date of postmark). Applications can be submitted via the FWF’s electronic application portal (elane). Please note that applications must be submitted according to the new application guidelines (March 2019 version). Funding decisions will be taken by the FWF Board at the end of June 2021 on the basis of international peer reviews.
The Firnberg and Richter programmes offer highly qualified female researchers aiming at an academic career the opportunity to receive funding in two stages and for a total of six years. The “Hertha Firnberg” post-doc programme supports women at the start of their careers, whereas the “Elise Richter” senior post-doc programme helps successful applicants obtain the qualifications necessary to apply for professorial positions in Austria or abroad.
Please note: This is the last call of the Hertha Firnberg programme. From April 2021, the ESPRIT programme will be accepting applications on a rolling basis from all postdocs at the beginning of their careers.
