The evaluation of proposals follows the dual control principle, i.e., at least two people read each application.

A committee of intermediate staff assesses the applications on behalf of the Commission for the Promotion of Early Career Researchers of the University of Bern, who makes the final decision.

The committee strives for a composition of intermediate staff from a broad range of fields, with and without a PhD. The committee is appointed by the Intermediate Staff Association of the University of Bern.

  • Dr. Gracia Brückmann, Institute of Political Science, Head
