NEW PSI-FELLOW-III-3i - International Fellowship Program 2020 - 2025
New PSI-FELLOW-II-3i postdocs programme launched its first call for applicants on September 1, 2020
PSI features a unique combination of excellent research facilities, including neutron, muon and light sources and (as of 2019) an X-ray free electron laser, which all exceed the possibilities of universities or industrial research centres. Motivated by the successful implementation of the H2020 COFUND programme PSI-FELLOW-II-3i, PSI now wants to further advance in post-doctoral training and education and will start PSI-FELLOW-III-3i. This 5-year programme will offer a total of 60 fellowships of two years duration each. The fellowships will be awarded in two calls for proposals with 30 fellowships in each call. In order to maximise the benefit for the Fellows and offer the widest possible range of research topics, PSI has teamed up with 46 partner organisations (34 research institutions and 12 companies). The unique setup of PSI-FELLOW-III-3i will allow using synergies with other leading research institutions for the training of the next generation of researchers specialised in tapping the full potential of large-scale research facilities, to transfer knowledge and stimulate innovation in Europe’s industries.

New PSI-FELLOW-II-3i postdocs taking up their duties (2nd call, 2019 - 2021)
Within the second call, 29 out of 59 eligible applicants were employed during the last months. On September 19, 2019, they were all invited to join the "welcome meeting" in which the program management unit (PMU) was providing essential information about the program and its continuos education program. The PSI-FELLOW-II-3i program offers these researchers the opportunity to perform their innovative scientific project in one of the four attractive scientific fields tackled at PSI: i) materials and matters, ii) life-sciences, iii) energy and environment and iv) accelerator technologies.
This second call was the last call for applications under this program.
