Open Positions

Soil Chemistry News

Prof. Jeff Catalano joined us as a guest professor for a 6-month sabbatical.

Currently, we have no open positions available.

Postdoctoral fellowships (with external funding):

Our group can host a limited number of postdoctoral fellows who have external fellowships. Since we usually receive a large number of requests by potential applicants, we strongly recommend that you contact Ruben Kretzschmar stating your research interests at least 3 months before the relevant submission deadline (6 months for SNSF Ambizione and Professorships). This is important to leave enough time for the preparation of a strong proposal. Also, if you contact us too late, we may already be commited to other proposals (we can only support one candidate per call for each fellowship, at the maximum).


Swiss Government Excellence Scholarships (annual submission deadlines: September to November)

Bilateral programmes with many countries, check the website for country-specific information and deadlines.

ETH Fellowship (annual submission deadlines: 1.3. and 1.9.)

Highly competitive fellowship, duration 2 years.

SNSF Professorships (2014 submission deadline: 1.5.)

Two to nine years after doctorate, highly competitive, duration 4 plus 2 years.

There are many other fellowship programs not listed here, possibly including programs in your home country.
