Apply for a Research Council Starting Grant with DBB?

We welcome expressions of interest from junior researchers who would like to apply for a Starting Grant (Etableringsbidrag) from the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet; VR), with DBB as host department. These are non-tenure track positions in our department and employment is matched to the duration of the grant. Decisions on whether or not the Dept will support an application are made by our local Recruitment Committee, who evaluate the potential for securing funding and the suitability of the proposed research for DBB. 

Please prepare a document (compiled in a single pdf) which includes:
•    Brief research plan (max 2 p; i.e. a full VR research plan should not be included)
•    CV (max 2 p)
•    Publication list
•    A text outlining why DBB offers an appropriate environment for your planned research (e.g. what new expertise and techniques you bring, synergies with existing research groups, availability of necessary infrastructure etc; max 1 p)

This document should be sent to the Chair of the Recruitment Committee, Prof. Christian Broberger, at

Deadlines: Requests for support for VR-Medicine/Health proposals should be submitted no later than Feb 23rd, 2024; for VR-Natural Sciences/ Technology proposals no later than March 8, 2024.

The process to apply for support for ERC Starting Grants follows a similar process, but the deadline is contingent on ERC deadlines.
