|The Polish Academy of Sciences launched the *PASIFIC Fellowship Programme* co-financed by the European Commission under the MSCA COFUND scheme.|
Its main goal is to enable *50 scientists of any nationality*, with a doctoral degree or 4-year full-time research experience, to spend *two years at one of the Polish Academy of Sciences institutes*.
The PASIFIC fellows will be selected in two calls announced in 2021 - the first one will be launched soon, on *15th March 2021*. On that day, an online submission system and Guide for Applicants will also be made available.
They aim at reaching the greatest possible number of outstanding researchers representing all scientific disciplines. Furthermore, to ensure adequate representation of male and female researchers, they promote the PASIFIC among various organisations supporting women in academia. The Programme offers direct benefits such as *family allowance or the 18-month extension* (for each child) of the required period of *past 5 years* from which the scientific achievements should be presented in the application form.
The particular attention is also paid to the gender balance among experts evaluating the proposals.
PASIFIC Fellowship Programme is an attractive opportunity for female researchers.
