Apply for SSF Industry-oriented Postdoc!

The Foundation for Strategic Research grants 10 million SEK in a new call: SSF Industrial Postdoctoral (SSF IPD)! The grant will finance the research of a researcher with a doctorate degree that is no more than five years old.

The purpose of the program is to contribute to needs-driven excellent research within SSF’s fields of activity namely natural science, technology or medicine. It should also promote cross-fertilization between academia and industry and contribute to the training of strategically relevant industrial researchers.

– Our industry-oriented program creates a strategic mobility of newly qualified researchers to industry, which provides both innovations and new discoveries, says Lars Hultman, CEO of SSF.

The researcher must have at least a 50 percent employment at a university where half of the research also will take place. The remaining time for the research must take place at the company and be linked to their research and development activities.

The grant covers a period of one to three years. SSF intends to finance a maximum of 10 projects of a maximum of 1.5 million SEK each (including indirect costs), and must be co-financed to at least 30 percent by the industry.

The application deadline is September 12, 2023 at 2:00 p.m.
