The results were confirmed by the University management last week.

The standard MASH call was announced for the fourth time. This time, GAMU responded to an extraordinary interest of junior researchers and opened the new category MASH Junior for those who recently obtained the Ph.D. degree. Applications were received from 36 researchers from Masaryk University and outside. More than a half of the candidates specialized in Life Sciences, 9 applications were in Social Sciences and Humanities, and 6 candidates applied in Physical Science, Mathematics and Computer Science.  

Out of the 12 candidates representing all fields of science who advanced to the final round of interviews, 7 were awarded MASH Junior, involving financial support of CZK 2 million for each winner for the period of 3 years, which may be extended by another 2 years.  

The MASH Award was not granted to any applicant this year.  

Masaryk University decided to respond to the tense political situation in Belarus and award MASH Belarus to one researcher of Belarusian roots.  

Negotiations with the award holders about the start of their work at the faculties will be held soon.
