Launched in April 2008 by the Rector`s Office of the University of Geneva, the UNIGE Scholarship of Excellence promotes women at post-doctorate level who have great scientific potential. The main objective is to give visibility to the excellency of women researchers and to assure them the best possible framework conditions.
This programe focusses on women at post-doctoral level who have great scientific potential. In concrete terms, the chosen candidates will benefit from a position as “maÃ®tre assistante” for a period of three years, attached directly to facultiesâ€™ deans offices in order to ensure the independence of the researchers. Whilst they are in principle full-time, these posts entail at most 20 % teaching or clinical work. During the programme the grantholders should be capable of satisfying, for example, the conditions for obtaining a grant for a professorship from the Swiss National Science Foundation.
The application will allow the organisers to judge the candidate`s potential in terms of:
Personal and scientific ability to plan and successfully complete a project over three years;
Potential for a high-level university career;
Quality of her scientific research;
Good scientific and personal integration in the unit in which she will work.
