For Postdoctoral Researchers Affected by the War in Ukraine and BeyondFedor Stepun Fellowship - 4-month Postdoc Fellowships

The Zimin Foundation in partnership with the Boris Nemtsov Foundation for Freedom provide financial resources to fund the “Fedor Stepun Fellowship Program”.

The program provides 8 postdoctoral fellowships for researchers from all scientific fields who were forced to leave their countries due to political persecution in regard to the ongoing war. The duration of each fellowship is 4 months. Each of the eight fellowships is endowed with 2,000 € per month. During this period, fellows are required to develop ideas and prepare grant proposals for research projects to be submitted to leading scientific institutions in Germany or/and other European countries.
