Eligibility Criteria

Eligibility Criteria for GlobalP3HS applicants

We are looking for promising talents coming to Switzerland from abroad that are able to push the boundaries of frontier research in public health sciences.

Citizens of any nationality may apply. There are no restrictions concerning age, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, political views, language or nationality. Candidates must, however, have a very good command of English (written and reading) as this will be the language of all GlobalP3HS PhD studies.

To ensure equal opportunity rights, however, women and candidates from so-called Lower and Middle Income Countries (LMIC) as defined by the World Bank will be prioritized among equally ranking candidates.

To apply to SSPH+ PhD Program GlobalP3HS, a candidate must fulfill the following three formal eligibility criteria defined by Swiss universities and the Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+) in accordance with the EU Horizon 2020 framework.

The candidate must

  • 1. hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent);
  • 2. be an Early-Stage Researcher (ESR), i.e. at the date of recruitment at the host organization, the ESR must be in the first four years since the Master’s degree that qualifies a candidate for a PhD and not have a doctoral degree;
  • 3. comply with the mobility rule of the EU Horizon 2020 framework, i.e. must not have resided or carried out the main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Switzerland for more than 12 months in total during the 3 (three) years immediately prior to the deadline for the submission of proposals (exception: refugee status).
