The postdoctoral mandates of the FWO support researchers in building an independent, international research career.

With this scholarship, a researcher who has recently obtained their PhD can built an independent postdoctoral research career. The scholarship is for three years and can potentially be renewed with another three years.

These scholarships are intended for researchers who are in the possession of a PhD degree with thesis or the equivalent.
Researchers who are younger than 36 years of age can always apply as a candidate. Researchers who are 36 years of age or older (counted from the beginning of the mandate, 1 October) can apply as a candidate within the first six years after having obtained a PhD.

The deadline for submitting an application is on 1 February, 17hrs, every year. Should the deadline fall on the weekend, the deadline is moved to first Monday that follows.
