NFF postdoc mobility grants

To foster cooperation between the NFF member universities and to encourage mobility within the Nordic countries, Nordic Academy of Management is launching postdoc research mobility grants!

You can apply if you hold a junior faculty position (assistant professor, postdoc or research associate) or a research affiliation at a Nordic Academy of Management member school. The grant is intended for travel, relocation, and accommodation during your stay at the host school, which needs to be another NFF member institution. Application deadlines for the postdoc mobility grants are in mid-March and mid-October each year.

Next application deadline for Postdoc Mobility Funds is March 22, 2024.

NFF postdoc mobility grants
NFF postdok criteria

The NFF postdoc mobility grant is intended for travel, relocation, and accommodation directly associated with the stay at the host school. In most cases, the grantees will have a salary or grant income from their home university for the duration of the visit. The NFF Mobility grant is planned as a useful addition to this. Costs can only be reimbursed against receipts up to the maximum amount of the grant (up to 2000 €).

Grantees are expected to contribute with verbal and visual material to the NFF communication channels (website, LinkedIn page etc.) during/associated with their stay.

Grantees must report on the use of the funds and submit their receipts as instructed by NFF within one year of a positive grant decision. Grants that have not been reported within one year of the decision can be reclaimed by NFF.

Eligible for the grant are scholars who …

  1. Have successfully defended their doctoral thesis  in the last 5 years preceding the date of application;
  2. Hold a junior faculty position (assistant professor, post.doc., or research associate) or a research affiliation at a NFF member school;
  3. Have been formally invited to pursue research tasks at postdoctoral level at another NFF member school in a different country (henceforth “the host school”);
  4. Will spend at least 30 days at the host school in the year immediately following the date of application, and
  5. Have submitted a complete application in line with NFF instructions, including an invitation by the host school, and information about other funding received during the grant period. (In most cases, the grantees will have a salary or grant income from their home university for the duration of the visit. The NFF Mobility grant is planned as a useful addition to this.) The maximum amount of the NFF-grant is 2000 €.
