The AXA Research Fund was created to encourage scientific research that would contribute to understanding and preventing environmental, life, and socio-economic risks. Protecting its clients and the community from risks is at the core of AXA’s purpose. Convinced that researching today will help better protecting tomorrow, the AXA Group has created the AXA Research Fund in January 2008 with € 100 million budget. Its mission is to boost scientific progress and discoveries that contribute to understand and prevent environmental, life and socio-economic risks. Areas of research eligible for funding Research projects funded by the Fund must fall within the scope of one of the themes identified by the AXA Scientific Board. Please refer to PDF for a description of the themes.

The Post-Doctoral funding (€130,000) is granted for a period of two years to young researchers who receive their (first) PhD within the 5 years preceding the deadline (extensions for documented career breaks may be allowed). Candidates need to have an excellent and promising track record, the potential for research independence and have experienced or are about to experience international mobility.

The first step is an internal selection. To prepare an application, candidates must provide:

  • a detailed CV (2 pages max + ½ page of the most relevant publications);
