Practicalities for the USI community


Who it is aimed at

The Shadowing grant is open to PhD students and post-doctoral researchers enrolled in the USI Mentoring Programme. The programme is open to women and all persons who are minoritised on the basis of their gender identity.


What it is

Being awarded a grant gives the opportunity to spend a month at a university or research institution outside Switzerland, benefiting from a relief from the work activities normally carried out at USI, in order to devote oneself exclusively to research activities that can make one's profile more competitive on the academic job market. The main affiliation institution of the person awarded the grant takes care of the internal replacement, while the Equal Opportunities Service covers the monthly salary normally received.


How to participate

To apply for Shadowing, please follow the instructions in the annual call for applications.

The call for applications is open from Wednesday 14 December 2022 to Monday 23 January 2023.
