Medical research positions

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 beneficiaries, which shall correspond to the level of a local assistant professorship or equivalent position. The Foundation shall determine the level of the salary in consultation with the university research institution at which the beneficiaries are employed. The Foundation may set a maximum salary. The funding of further project costs is excluded.

The Guidelines on the allocation of research positions have been issued by the Board of the Foundation.
