Eligibility for FWO Junior Postdoctoral Fellowships

FWO Junior Postdoctoral Fellowships are designed to help recent Ph.D. scientists establish independent, international research careers. You can apply for FWO Junior Postdoctoral Fellowships

  • You hold a Ph.D. based on a thesis or a degree or diploma or certificate recognized as equivalent in accordance with European Union directives or a bilateral agreement.
  • You can apply for a junior postdoctoral fellowship if you have obtained your doctorate no later than 3 years before October, the 1st year in which the fellowship would start, or it will be obtained no later than June 1 of that year.
  • You have not received a similar scholarship (even partially) before.
  • You can apply for the same scholarship no more than twice. You can apply for a senior postdoctoral fellowship immediately after completing a junior postdoctoral fellowship.

Eligibility for Senior postdoctoral fellowships

The Senior Postdoctoral Fellowships are intended to support researchers who completed their Ph.D. several years ago in the development of an independent international research career.

You can apply for FWO Senior Postdoctoral Fellowships

  • You hold a Ph.D. based on a thesis or a degree or diploma or certificate recognized as equivalent in accordance with European Union directives or a bilateral agreement
  • You can apply for a postdoctoral fellowship if your Ph.D. degree, with the reference date shown on the Ph.D. degree, was awarded a minimum of three years and a maximum of six years before the first October of the year in which the fellowship begins. You can always apply for a Senior Postdoctoral Fellowship if you have previously completed a Junior Fellowship. In such a case, the senior postdoctoral fellowship must immediately follow the junior postdoctoral fellowship.
  • You must have at least 2 years of postdoctoral research experience by the first of October of the year in which the fellowship begins. In case you have not yet completed a (junior) FWO postdoctoral fellowship, you must prove this experience with a statement from the Flemish host institute. The declaration should be signed by someone with signature authority binding the host institution. For more information, contact the research coordination office of the host institute.
  • You have not received a similar scholarship (even partially) before.
  • You can apply for the same scholarship no more than twice.
