NRF AND ERC 2018 / 2019 Bursary Opportuinity
Applicant Closing Date: 18 May 2018
Designated Authority Closing Date: 25 May 2018
The South African Department of Science and Technology (DST) entered into an agreement with the European Commission (EC), appointing the NRF and the European Research Council (ERC) as implementing agencies for this partnership. The aim of the agreement is to provide South African Postdoctoral researchers opportunities to pursue research collaboration with European colleagues already supported through EU-funded ERC grants. The collaboration is intended to enable South African postdoctoral researchers supported through the NRF postdoctoral fellowships to undertake research visits to ERC-supported teams. It is therefore expected that collaborations will occur in similar areas of scientific pursuit and on topics of mutual interest. South African researchers should therefore, go through the attached list of European projects interested in finding a South African postdoc to host as part of their research team.
All South African applications must be submitted electronically to the NRF at https://nrfsubmission.nrf.ac.za. A detailed call document is attached.
Call opens: 3 April 2018
Call closes: 18 May 2018
Designated Authorities have until 25 May 2018 to submit applications to the NRF.
Please note that applications submitted outside the NRF Online Submission System will not be accepted.
