The IEE welcomes applicants for SNSF Starting grants to be hosted in our Institute. The applicants should send a preliminary inquiry to the acting Director by email, together with their CV, a brief description of their research project, and a description of the space and equipment that would be needed for the research. This inquiry should be done by the beginning of September 2023 for the 2024 Starting grants call. The proposal will be discussed at the next meeting of the board of directors, and if approved, the applicant will be invited for a public talk. A final decision would then be made soon after and communicated to the candidate.
