The scholarship is intended for qualified researchers who have defended their thesis or have received a positive evaluation of their thesis at the Faculty of Science and Technology within the last 9 months. Applicants who have not submitted their thesis will not be considered. As a general rule, the scholarship will cover the salary for a period of at least 6 months after the defence, where 3 months are covered by the Faculty and 3 months by the applicant's department.
The grant is intended for researchers awaiting clarification regarding Post Docs/Researcher positions at UiT. It must be stated in the application for which position(s) you are awaiting clarification, or if you plan to apply/have applied for funding from e.g. NRC, EU or other sources of funding.
