The FP-RESOMUS fellowship program supports postdoctoral positions in the research networks NCCR MUST and RESOLV.
The postdoctoral Fellowship Program FP-RESOMUS (Resolving Solvation with Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology) is a joint effort of the Swiss National Center of Competence in Research Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology (NCCR MUST) and the German Cluster of Excellence RESOLV (Ruhr Explores Solvation), and is a Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND Action. FP-RESOMUS will fund three calls (50 fellowships in total) for postdocs who are or will be employed in the Swiss research network NCCR MUST or the German Cluster of Excellence RESOLV. In the NCCR MUST network, the gross salary of the fellows is between Euro 5'550 – 7'600 per month (different for each partner organisation). The gross salary of a postdoctoral fellow in the RESOLV network can be calculated on TV-L E13 and ranges from Euro 3840 to 5620 per month, according to the public service's wage agreement. For more information, please visit our website: fp-resomus.eu.
FP-RESOMUS includes more than 50 research groups from NCCR MUST and RESOLV who strive to increase the fundamental understanding of the interactions and dynamics of molecules, liquids, solutions, and solids at the molecular, atomic, and electronic level. The tools used to gain this understanding are state-of-the-art laser technology, microscopy, and simulation methods.
FP-RESOMUS aims to attract postdoctoral fellows from around the world (incoming), strengthen the exchange of postdoctoral researchers between the two networks (outgoing) and enable the return of Swiss and German researchers working overseas into a European research environment (re-integration).
The program focusses on individual research training in the context of research projects developed in collaboration with NCCR MUST or RESOLV scientists listed under Projects on the FP-RESOMUS website. Fellows will be encouraged to undertake secondments within the FP-RESOMUS network. Fellows will also be offered training in transferable skills, and have concrete opportunities to apply their new skills. Formal courses may be selected within all participating institutions. This holistic approach is designed to benefit the career development of each fellow, as well as the receiving research groups and the scientific field as a whole.
The following general requirements must be met:
FP-RESOMUS offers an interdisciplinary, innovative and collaborative research environment. In addition to a systematic training on the job, you will profit from personal development possibilities and the opportunity to attend transferable skills courses. Research visits to partner institutions within FP-RESOMUS are encouraged and supported. It is the aim of FP-RESOMUS to grant attractive postdoctoral positions to outstanding and highly motivated applicants, regardless of their nationality and gender. On-site infrastructures guarantee a family-friendly environment and modern employment conditions.
The duration of an FP-RESOMUS fellowship is limited to two years. Employment after the end of the fellowship must be financed from other sources.
