The SNSF Career Tracker Cohorts (SNSF-CTC) project is a longitudinal panel study with yearly cohorts. It aims at tracking the career paths of young researchers applying to the SNSF career funding schemes at the postdoctoral level. The main goals of the SNSF-CTC are to monitor the careers of the researchers and to evaluate the impact of the different career funding schemes of the SNSF.

The first cohort starts in October 2018 with Postdoc.Mobility and Early Postdoc.Mobility. Included in the sample are all researchers who applied to one of the two schemes in autumn 2018. Applicants to Ambizione, PRIMA and Eccellenza will be interviewed for the first time in spring 2019.
