The Professor Dr Max Cloëtta Foundation finances medical research positions at Swiss universities, clinics and institutes. The Cloëtta positions for medical research are intended for fully trained and independently working researchers, especially if they are suitable for positions to be created later or that become vacant. By creating long-term research positions, the Professor Dr Max Cloëtta Foundation aims to help counter a shortage 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.
The Guidelines on the allocation of research positions have been issued by the Board of the Foundation.
