New opportunity to apply to: Research Infrastructure Fellows,RIF-2

Achieving success in research constantly requires better instrumentation and infrastructure. And above all, skilled experts are needed to create the equipment. It is to these people that the call SSF Research Infrastructure Fellows, RIF-2, is addressed.

To contribute to an increased and more efficient utilization of research infrastructures and at the same time create career paths for key people who work with the development, construction and operation of research infrastructure at Swedish universities, the Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, is investing 105 million SEK in the RIF-2 call.

The call is aimed at people who have chosen a career path other than the classical academic one and who are of crucial importance to the research community. They can be, for example, research engineers, instrument managers, machine or lab managers, that is people who all actively develop the research infrastructure.

According to SSF’s statutes, the foundation must support research in science, technology and medicine and the call is therefore aimed at infrastructure in these areas.

Seven persons are appointed, each receiving SEK 15 million over a five-year period. The grant will cover salary, research infrastructure tools and running costs. After two and a half years, a mid-term evaluation is carried out, which may affect the financing during the remaining period.

Last day to apply is February 15, 2022!

A decision on the grants will be made in November 2022, with the project starting in January 2023.
