The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) has established several opportunities for international exchanges that you, as a KTH researcher, can apply. At this time, there are three calls open:

  • A long-term postdoctoral fellowship program at Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
  • A scholarship program for postdoctoral studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Broad Institute.
  • A long-term postdoctoral scholarship program at Stanford University.

The scholarships aim to bring outstanding young Swedish scientists to these universities for one to two years of postdoctoral studies and research. The Postdoctoral Fellows are allowed to participate in a broad range of interdisciplinary activities and programmes at the selected universities. After completing the visits, the scholars will be supported upon their return home and use their experience to benefit Sweden.
