Society in Science – The Branco Weiss Fellowship is a postdoc program that aims to support research at the frontiers between science and society. It was founded in 2002 and belongs to the ETH Zurich since 2009. Nevertheless, the fellowship does not imply any obligation for the fellow to stay at ETH or to collaborate with the university.
The five year fellowship is designed for postdocs at home in sciences, engineering and social sciences who are willing to engage in a dialogue on relevant social, cultural, political or economic issues across the frontiers of their particular discipline. The program aims at awarding up to ten fellowships each year.
Applications for the 2015 fellowship close on January 15, 2015.
