NP - Young Scientists and PostDoctoral Fellows-2

The Agricultural Academyis a beneficiary of the National Program "Young Scientists and Postdoctoral Fellows-2" (NPMUPD-2), approved by Decision No. 206 of 04/07/2022. of the Council of Ministers. The program is a continuation of one of the good practices for attracting and supporting the career development of young scientists (YS) and postdoctoral students (PD) in the Bulgarian public scientific organizations (SO) and state universities (SU). 

The goal of NPMUPD-2 is to attract and retain talented young people for research work and to introduce supporting measures to make Bulgaria an active participant in the European Research Area (ERA). Its implementation is expected to encourage YS and PD to research work and support their career development. The ultimate goal is to create a new generation of highly qualified scientists, conducting quality scientific research, responsible to society, and with results supporting the implementation of the National Strategy for the Development of Scientific Research (NSRI). 

The term of the Program is until the end of 2025. and should be implemented in two stages with the following duration

  • Phase I, from 2022 to the end of 2023
  • Phase II, from the beginning of 2024 to the end of 2025

The activity of the National Program "Young scientists and postdoctoral fellows - 2" is organized in two modules. Under the first, young scientists who do not have a work contract with a specific university or scientific organization will be attracted and appointed. Already appointed assistants, principal assistants and doctoral students can be supported, including part-time and independent study, up to 10 years after acquiring the first educational qualification "master's". Newly appointed young scientists will receive remuneration of BGN 1,200 per month. Those of them who are already employed under another contract in the same organization will receive an additional BGN 300 to BGN 800 per month. In both cases, insurance funds are included at the expense of the employer. 

The second module "Postdoctoral fellows" is intended for scientists with an educational and scientific degree "doctor" from a Bulgarian or foreign university or scientific organization, acquired not more than five years ago. They apply for financial support with a project proposal on a current scientific topic. The project must be at a high scientific level, have a detailed program and a detailed financial plan. The project implementation period is up to 24 months. Preference will be given to postdoctoral fellows who do not work in a specific university or scientific organization. 

The remuneration for the newly appointed postdoctoral fellows is from BGN 2,000 to BGN 3,000 per month, including funds for insurance at the employer's expense and for additional remuneration for the educational and scientific degree "doctor". Those who are from another country or settlement can receive an additional up to BGN 1,000 per month for housing expenses. Postdoctoral students already employed at the relevant university or scientific organization will receive an additional 400 to 800 BGN per month, including funds for insurance at the expense of the employer. The financing of the activities under the National Program is carried out with funds provided by the funds for the implementation of the NSRI in the central budget, which are provided through the budget of the Ministry of Education and Science (MOES) to the beneficiaries - public SO and SU. 

By Order No. RD04-121/20.07.2022. of the Chairman of the Agricultural Academy, a commission is formed to develop a mechanism and rules for a transparent competitive selection of candidates and to propose distribution of the funds received under the program to the structural units of the SAA. The announcements for recruiting candidates for the two modules: "young scientists" and "postdoctoral fellows" will be published additionally on this electronic page, and for postdoctoral fellows - also on the Euraxess electronic portal. - see the text of the Order
