Description

JESH-UKRAINE EMERGENCY CALL

Due to the war in Ukraine, the Austrian Academy of Sciences is offering an emergency call for applications from Ukrainian researchers as part of its academic mobility programme “Joint Excellence in Science and Humanities” (JESH).

The aim of the special call JESH-Ukraine is to support Ukrainian scientists who had/have to leave their country in temporarily carrying out a scientific project at an Austrian research institution.

1. INFORMATION & CONDITIONS

TARGET GROUP

Applications are invited from Ukrainian citizens who have completed their doctorate/PhD studies, and are affiliated as scientists or scholars with a university or non-university research institution in Ukraine.

HOST INSTITUTIONS

All institutes and departments at Austrian public universities, at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and at any publicly funded basic research institution in Austria are eligible to act as host institutes for JESH-Ukraine.

EXTENT AND DURATION OF FUNDING

JESH-Ukraine covers the cost of living for a research stay of up to a maximum of 4 months (with the possibility of extension). Expenses are paid at a flat rate of EUR 2,700 per fellow per month. Other project-related expenses or overheads are not covered by this fellowship but may be covered by the host institution.
