ETH Postdoctoral Fellowship

Does anybody know when ETH notifies you about the results of your application for Postdoc. fellowship? My husband applied 8 weeks ago, and haven't heard anything thus far. Online it says it takes about 6-8 weeks for you to hear if you get invited for an interview. My husband needs to apply for a visa in case he gets called for an interview... and it's cutting it kind of close (interviews are May 16).
Did anybody else apply and hear back? Or maybe you applied in the previous round and can give me an idea when they usually let you know?
Any insight is much appreciated!
Thanks

Re: ETH Postdoctoral Fellowship

Check thegradcafe.com for previous acceptance times perhaps?

Re: ETH Postdoctoral Fellowship

Thanks for the link, unfortunately I checked, even previous years only lest Masters/PhD. results not postdoc.
Oh well, I guess we just wait.

Email the group (the secretary or the head) directly.

Re: ETH Postdoctoral Fellowship

My husband will likely be applying in the next round. Since the post-doc and the supervisor are to apply together, maybe the supervisor already knows?

"Applications have to be made jointly by the candidate and their host who must be an ETH Zurich Professor and who will act as a mentor of the fellow."

Might be worth emailing the prof and seeing if they've heard preliminary results before the official emails are sent. I'll bet they'd know who's got it before anyone else does.

There were only 16 given out in 2012, 24 in total for 2011. Competitive!

Re: ETH Postdoctoral Fellowship

This thread was actually a while ago, he didn't end up getting it. He got an e-mail from both his prof. and the committee. Hope that helps

What position and in what department are you waiting on? When did you put the application in? I would say it's definitely pretty late in the job season right now and certainly not fair to keep you waiting, especially if the position is anticipated to start in September (less than 3 months from now!).

Cheers and good luck,
Jarron

Re: ETH Postdoctoral Fellowship

The position is for a postdoc at the ETH biomed department. I interviewed last month in mid-may and I'm still waiting for a decision. I agree that it's late in the game especially that my potential starting date is July 1st!! I tried to contact them to at least give me some more information about my application status but to no avail.
