The Professor Dr Max Cloëtta Foundation finances medical research posts at Swiss universities, clinics and institutes. The Cloëtta positions for medical research are destined for fully trained and independent researchers, in particular inasmuch as they may be considered for positions still to be created, or to become vacant. By creating long-term research positions, the Professor Dr Max Cloëtta Foundation wishes to counteract the threatening lack of young researchers in Switzerland. Candidates should not be older than 40 years.
The Foundation finances the salary of the beneficiary of Cloëtta research posts, including the employer’s social security contributions. Further project costs are not financed by the foundation. The grants are offered every two years.
Guidelines for the adjudication of medical research posts were issued by the Board of the Foundation. Guidelines (PDF)
The grants are offered every two years, next time in 2020. Please find all necessary information and the application form
as of January 2020 on this website.
