PRIMA - The stepping stone to your professorship: Get to know the new SNSF funding scheme for women researchers at postdoc level

Dienstag, 20. Juni 2017, 17:00 Uhr bis 18:00 Uhr

Female professors continue to be underrepresented at Swiss higher education institutions. By introducing PRIMA (Promoting Women in Academia), the SNSF intends to contribute to the appointment of female professors in Switzerland. PRIMA grants are aimed at excellent women researchers from Switzerland and abroad who aspire to a professorship in Switzer-land. PRIMA grantees lead their own research project at a Swiss higher education institution. They work independently and have a team of their own.

This information session is aimed at female researchers at postdoc level from all disciplines as well as interested professors who want to know more about PRIMA. In the course of this session, Professor Susan Gasser will explain the modalities of this new SNSF funding scheme. In her function as president of the SNSF Gender Equality Commission, Gasser has played a key role in the making of PRIMA.
