APART-GSK is a funding programme for excellent junior scholars in the humanities and the social and cultural sciences (GSK) in the first post-doc phase of their careers. The programme seeks to offer opportunities for extraordinary young researchers on the path to scholarly independence to acquire open-topic funding by themselves and with their own research ideas.
The aim is to support successful applicants in attaining a level of scholarship that will enable successful application for career track or high-level grants (e.g. START programme, ERC Starting Grant).
Applications are invited from post-docs from Austria and abroad up to a maximum of three years after receipt of their doctorate who can already demonstrate outstanding publications.
The project can be undertaken at any suitable Austrian research institution. Part of the period under funding can be spent abroad.
