With the support of the Österreich-Fonds on 21 February 2018 the FWF started the second call for applications in the doc.funds-programme.
doc.funds is a programme to promote outstanding doctoral programmes and to consolidate existing education and training structures for highly qualified junior researchers. Applicants can request additional funding for any structured doctoral programme that has been in operation for at least two years. The university (or universities) offering the programme must be clearly committed to providing basic funding, that is, providing all of the necessary infrastructure as well as funds for the o-going operation and institutional anchoring of the programme.
The application must be completed in writing and is to be submitted by e-mail (birgit.woitech(at)fwf.ac.at; no scanned files, please) and on paper with original signatures and stamps along with files on a data storage device. The submission deadline is 14 May 2018 (date of postmark).
In order to enable international peer review, all applications are to be submitted in English.
The final funding decisions will be made by the FWF Board in early March 2019 on the basis of recommendations issued by the international doc.funds-Jury. The jury’s funding recommendations, in turn, are based on the written reviews received from international experts (three reviews per application) and on hearings to which the most promising applicants are invited. These hearings are scheduled for mid-/late February 2019.
