The three postdoc review panels assess all applications for postdoc grants received through the annual open call. The research must be relevant to Forte’s overall areas of responsibility, health, working life and welfare.

Postdoc grants are targeted at researchers in the beginning of their careers. The grants provide researchers the opportunity to continue their research career after obtaining their PhD. The grant is awarded for 2 years and corresponds to a full-time salary.

On the page Fields of research, you can read more about the kind of research that is covered by Forte’s areas of responsibility, health, working life and welfare.
