When awarding grants for Postdoctoral Positions, the Swedish Cancer Society assumes that the holder will be working full time within the project. The grant can be combined with a maximum of 20% secondary employment, for example clinical employment.
This is calculated in accordance with the current salary standard from the Swedish Cancer Society's research committee. The salary standard is adjusted annually.
The grant is calculated on the current salary standard, holiday pay (1.3%) and salary fees (51.7%) plus the managing institution's deductions for indirect costs (15.25%).
