We are looking to host an individual fellow (with a PhD) who would like to pursue a research project in canine cognitive aging, at the Senior Family Dog Project, Eötvös University, Budapest.
Funded by the EU, these fellowships, named after the double Nobel Prize winning Polish-French scientist, support researchers at all stages of their careers, irrespective of nationality.  European Fellowships are open to researchers either coming to Europe from any country in the world or moving within Europe. Only one proposal per individual researcher is evaluated.
If you would like to submit an application, get in touch with the PI ( outlining your proposed project and attach your CV. These fellowships are highly competitive, so preparing a strong application will take probably several weeks.
What is the salary of a fellowship?
  • Living allowance: This refers to the basic, gross amount for the benefit of the researcher to be paid to the researcher in monthly instalments:  €4,650* / month. *This amount is then adjusted through the application of a correction coefficient for the cost of living according to the country in which the host organisation is located. The country correction coefficients that will be applied are indicated in Table 4 in Part 3 of the Work Programme (HU: 76.2%, p 71)
  • Mobility allowance: In addition to the living allowance, a mobility allowance will be paid to recruited researchers:  €600 / month
  • Family allowance: A family allowance will be paid in case the supported researcher has family obligations. In this context, family is defined as persons linked to the researcher (i) by marriage, or (ii) a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognised by the legislation of the country where this relationship was formalised; or (iii) as dependent children who are actually being maintained by the researcher. This allowance amounts to: €500 / month

We are searching for excellent and motivated researchers to apply with us to these EU funded fellowships.
