SRF Courses

The Senior Research Fellowship Programme aims at attracting internationally renowned scientists to Vienna for visits to the ESI for up to several months. The programme aims to stimulate interactions between the Senior Research Fellow and the local scientific community. It is intended to enable graduate students, postdoctoral fellows as well as established researchers at the surrounding institutions to communicate with leading scientists in their field of expertise and to initiate common research projects and scientific collaborations.

Senior Research Fellows shall contribute to the scientific training of graduate students and postdocs of Vienna’s research institutions by teaching a course and by giving scientific seminars as well as presentations to the general public.

The programme is by invitation only. Senior Research Fellows are usually chosen based on nominations made by members of the local scientific community about one year prior to the intended time period.
