POLONEZ BIS 1 – the first call launched!

POLONEZ BIS call 1 is now closed!

120 outstanding researchers from all over the world will come to Poland to carry out their projects under the POLONEZ BIS programme. We are pleased to announce that the first call is already open! The deadline for applications is on 15 December 2021.

POLONEZ BIS, coordinated by the Polish National Science Centre under Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND, is a postdoctoral Fellowship Programme addressed to excellent, experienced researchers interested in developing their professional skills within the best research institutions in Poland.


The POLONEZ BIS programme is open to candidates of any research background, discipline or nationality. The programme plans to recruit 120 scientists with a PhD degree or equivalent research experience, and who have lived or worked outside Poland for at least 2 years within the last three years prior to the call announcement. Selected fellows will be offered 2-year full-time employment contracts to work on projects combining basic research with an international or cross-sectoral secondment phase.

Fellows will be independent in choosing the topic and discipline of the project. They will collaborate with outstanding supervisors at an academic or non-academic host institution of their choice. The programme guarantees successful fellows attractive employment conditions – the monthly allowance of € 4,465 gross and an additional research grant up to € 100 000 for the implementation of a 2-year project.
