Extent and duration of the financial support
The extent and duration of the financial support depends on predicted research efforts and the attractiveness of the proposal. Normally, the funding of PhD thesis projects is for 3–4 years and postdoc projects for 1–2 years. In general, the funding includes salary, chemicals & consumables, and travel funds (these funds should be initially used to visit events organized by the Phospholipid Research Center). The costs may be funded completely or partially. However, technical employees, additional university overhead costs, and acquisition of equipment are not financed.
The funding sum, especially the salary, should be related to the country specific costs for such projects. These costs need to be justified by referring to official country specific guidelines issued by, e.g., the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF), The Dutch Research Council (NWO), or the German Research Foundation (DFG).
