UZH Postdoc Team Award Launched Thanks to Donation

The newly introduced UZH Postdoc Team Award is financed through a private donation to the President’s Fund of the UZH Foundation. The award recognizes excellent and independent scientific achievements of interdisciplinary postdoc teams and is worth up to CHF 15,000.

To be considered for the award, the research should have high social relevance and/or make an impact on society. The award is given to teams rather than individual researchers to recognize the collaborative nature of research.

The award is worth CHF 15,000 in total and can be divided up evenly to up to three teams. Winning teams will be invited to an awards ceremony and dinner together with the donor

Would you and your team like to apply for the award? Go to the UZH for Researchers webpage to find out how.
