Young researchers are encouraged to dedicate themselves to a career in postdoctoral research.
It does so by giving them the chance to enhance their career prospects by spending up to two years at a top research institution outside the Netherlands or one year at an excellent Dutch research institution.
The Rubicon programme also offers talented researchers from abroad the opportunity to obtain grants to spend one year conducting research in the Netherlands.
Proposals will be assessed on the basis of the quality of the applicant, the research proposal and the host institution.
The Rubicon programme is open to all scientific disciplines.
In order to promote mobility among researchers, applications will be admissible only if the candidate is to conduct the research at an institution other than the one where he or she graduated or that awarded his or her doctorate.
The research must also be conducted in a country other than the one where the applicant graduated or obtained the doctorate, unless that country is the Netherlands.
Deadline: There are three selection rounds a year for Rubicon grants.
