>  Educational   >  REinforcing Women In REsearch (REWIRE) – 16 Postdoc Fellowship
REWIRE Fellowship


The overall goal of the REinforcing Women IREsearch (REWIRE) COFUND Programme, a Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions COFUND project funded by the European Commission,  is to establish a support scheme for excellent postdoctoral female researchers to foster their scientific development, to nurture their expertise and to make a profound impact on their future careers. The Programme aims to address statistics published in the European Commission’s “She Figures 2015” which clearly demonstrate that women are under-represented in academic careers.

  • Develop transferable skills
  • Gain international exposure through publications in high-profile journals

The Programme is open to researchers of all ages. However, given that REWIRE has been designed to support researchers in their postdoctoral phase who are on their way to the next main steps in their careers (i.e. becoming young group leaders and PIs). REWIRE has a focus on recruiting ambitious researchers who have the potential to embark on independent research careers and will be serious candidates for prestigious investigator grants such as the ERC Starting Grant or the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) START Prize

The REWIRE Programme will fund 16 fellows over two calls. For an indicative timetable of the calls please follow this link
