The Université libre de Bruxelles has created a Solidarity Fund in order to provide support for researchers who no longer have the freedom to pursue their research in their home country, where they are threatened due to the content of their scientific work or to the opinions they have freely expressed.
The Solidarity Fund will offer postdoctoral fellowships to enable threatened academics to continue their work at ULB in a climate of academic freedom.
The solidarity fellowship consists in a one-year (12 months) postdoctoral position, amounting to 43,000 euros gross (approximately 28,000 euros net), plus a relocation allowance of 5,000 euros net (payable after arrival in Belgium should the researcher have to move from another country).
The recipients will carry out research in a ULB laboratory, supervised by a member of the University’s academic staff. They may, if they so wish, take part in teaching activities or any other scientific activities organised on campus.
