Løn- og driftsomkostninger


Reintegration fellowships are two-year postdoctoral fellowships at Danish research institutions for postdoctoral fellows subsequent to an internationalisation fellowship funded by the Carlsberg Foundation or another research stay abroad.


These fellowships are awarded to postdoctoral fellows who wish to undertake research activities in Denmark after a research stay abroad. As a general rule, only applicants who are abroad at the time of the application deadline are eligible to apply for this fellowship. 

Applicants who, at the time of the application deadline, have more than five years’ experience since obtaining their PhD degree are not eligible. 

The exact date on which the PhD degree was obtained must be clearly stated in the CV. The Carlsberg Foundation reserves the right to request additional documentation.

Any periods of leave will be accepted as extensions of this time limit (parental leave, family care leave, illness, military service, etc.).

Reintegration fellowships are only awarded to postdoctoral fellows with a strong connection to Danish research (see FAQ for a definition) and a previous research stay abroad.


The Carlsberg Foundation covers the fellow’s full salary plus operating expenses of DKK 8,000 per month. 

Operating expenses are at the postdoctoral fellow’s disposal to cover conferences, study trips, etc., and cannot be used to cover overhead costs and administration fees, or costs to be covered by the project supplement.

Where there are special operating expenses related to the project, an additional DKK 60,000 can be applied for, provided that the expenses are specified in the budget template. These expenses may include, but are not limited to, laboratory access or procurement of instruments or apparatus.
