UNIGE Scholarship of Excellence

This initiative was launched in 2008 by the Rectorate of the University. Its objective is to increase the number of female professors.

This programe focusses on women at post-doctoral level who have great scientific potential. In concrete terms, the chosen candidates will benefit from a position as "maître assistante" for a period of three years, attached directly to faculties’ deans offices in order to ensure the independence of the researchers.

Whilst they are in principle full-time, these posts entail at most 20 % teaching or clinical work. During the programme the grantholders should be capable of satisfying, for example, the conditions for obtaining a grant for a professorship from the Swiss National Science Foundation.
The programme also includes monitoring by professors of the scientific projects and career planning for the beneficiaries.
