Doctoral Mobility

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) awards "mobility grants" to doctoral students employed in research projects funded by the SNSF so that they may spend a stay abroad within the scope of their doctoral studies.

Applications must be made in writing to the NCCR management office, using the specific application form. The application form and the respective SNF-regulations for “doctoral mobility” can be downloaded below.

The managing team (NCCR director, vice-director and project manager) plus the representative(s) from Education & Training and Advancement of Women approve or disapprove candidate applications.
