  • hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent);
  • be an Early-Stage Researcher (ESR), i.e. at the date of recruitment at the host organization, the ESR must have no more than 4 years of research experience (counted in total not continuously) since the first Master’s degree that qualifies a candidate for a PhD and not have a doctoral degree;
  • comply with the mobility rule of the EU Horizon 2020 framework, i.e. must not have resided or carried out the main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Switzerland for more than 12 months in total during the 3 (three) years immediately prior to the deadline for the submission of proposals (exception: refugee status).
