ERCIM, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics, invites applications from eligible candidates for fellowships for Ph.D. holders from all over the world. The Topics cover most disciplines in Computer Science, Information Technology, and Applied Mathematics.
The Fellows are hosted in leading European Research Institutes.

- Calculus of variations
- The fellows are appointed for 12 months either by a stipend (an agreement for a research training program) or a working contract.
- The type of contract and the monthly allowance (for stipends) or salary (for working contracts) depend on the hosting institute (see table above).
- It should be noted that the stipend (Fellowship Agreement) does not constitute a contract of employment.
- As such, no contributions are made, on behalf of the fellow, in respect of unemployment insurance or either state or private retirement schemes.
- The fellow will not, therefore, be entitled to any unemployment or retirement benefits under the Fellowship Agreement.
For the entire period of 12 months, the fellow will receive a monthly allowance or salary (depending on the type of contract) which may vary depending on the country. Costs for traveling to and from the institutes will be paid under conditions determined by the contract.
Candidates applying for the Fellowship should have obtained a Ph.D. degree during the last 8 years (prior to the application year deadline) or be in the last year of the thesis work with an outstanding academic record. Nevertheless, before starting the grant, proof of the Ph.D. degree will be requested.
Each application is reviewed by one or more senior scientists in each participating ERCIM institute. ERCIM representatives decide on the candidates to whom Fellowships are offered, taking into account the following criteria:
- The scientific expertise of the applicant
- Quality of scientific publications
- The relevance of the fellowship research agenda
- Interest/ added-value for the consortium
- Previous mobility / professional experiences.
