Junior & NPS Grants

Take the next step in your academic career


The objective of the Grants is to foster young scientists in taking a next career step by designing, implementing and leading an own research project within NCCR-Kidney.CH. Three types of grants are foreseen:

  • Junior Grant
    The concept of this grant is to support young scientists for an own project with a grant up to CHF 60’000 per year for a maximum of 3 years. In addition, the associated institute needs to guarantee lab space, equipment and sufficient material support for the project.
  • NPS-Grant
    Young Nephro Physician-Scientist grants allow young physicians to engage in kidney research keeping a foot in clinical work. Furthermore, it allows hiring MDs as postdocs (not MD-PhD students) for cost of PhD student or alternatively finances also incoming Kidney-MD-PhD students.
  • Mini Sabbatical
    Goal of this grant is to give a highly skilled and promising young scientist the opportunity to focus for a certain time (e.g. 6 months) purely on research work, preparation of the postdoctoral lecture qualification (“habilitation”), writing of grant applications,etc. During this time the scientist will receive a supplementary to the salary, which will allow her or him to step back from clinical or teaching duties during this period.


The next call for Junior Grant projects is envisaged in autumn 2017.
