The PASIFIC is a postdoctoral fellowship programme offering a unique opportunity for researchers who want to undertake state-of-the-art research in a dynamic scientific environment. It enables scholars of all nationalities and across all scientific disciplines to establish their scientific independence and conduct ground-breaking research. The Programme is co-funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Maria Sklodowska-Curie COFUND scheme.

They conduct their research in three areas – Physical Sciences and Engineering (22 Fellows), Life Sciences (11 Fellows), and Social Sciences and Humanities (15 Fellows). The projects cover many disciplines, including, for example, Universe Science, Materials Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics, Cultures and Cultural Production, Environmental Biology, or Ecology and Evolution.

The Fellows are hosted by 25 Polish Academy of Sciences Institutes. The greatest number of Fellows work at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology (7) and Institute of Physical Chemistry (5).
