1-3 Doctoral Candidate projects and Seed Money for new collaborations

Umeå University Industrial Doctoral School (IDS) call for applications for funding of 1-3 doctoral research projects.

Doctoral research projects will be funded jointly by the university and an external partner; each part will contribute 50 % of the doctoral candidate’s salary. IDS also call for applications for seed money aiming to establish external collaborations with the objective to apply for funding for doctoral research projects 2019.

1-3 Doctoral Candidate Projects

The doctoral research projects must be based on a collaboration between researchers at Umeå University and employees at an external organisation, such as a company, third-sector or public-sector organisation. The projects are financed jointly by the university and the external partner, who contributes 50 percent of the doctoral candidate’s salary.

In partnership with a company, third-sector or public-sector organisation, doctoral candidates in IDS work for four years to answer a research question that is both of mutual interest to the partners and important for the future. IDS projects have a high level of scientific quality and the ambition is that they should provide public benefit, which lays a foundation for both competitiveness and development.

Researchers at Umeå University who have the right to act as the principal supervisor for a doctoral candidate are eligible to apply for doctoral candidate funding.

If the external partner is a non-profit organisation, IDS this year offers an opportunity to apply for extended funding from the university. In cases of granted applications, the external partner then only need to fund 25 % of the doctoral candidate’s salary (i.e. 75 % funds by the university and 25 % from the external part). To apply, a specific motivation is needed that include a clear description of why the external part is unable to fund 50 % of the salary of the doctoral candidate.

Closing date is 16th of September 2018.

Seed Money for New Collaborations

Seed money can be applied for (max 50 000 SEK incl. overhead) to establish an external collaborator aiming to make an application for the IDS call for doctoral research projects 2019. The external partner/s do not need to be approached beforehand.

The funding can be used to cover, for example travels or time, and can be used until the deadline for the call in 2019 (early autumn, exact date is not determined yet).

Researchers at Umeå University who have the right to act as the principal supervisor for a doctoral candidate are eligible to apply for seed money.
