Terms of participation


The antelope career program occurs once a year and is advertised on the University of Basel’s website.

Target group

The free program is primarily aimed at highly qualified female postdocs and outstanding female PhD students who are about to graduate. Postdocs must be employed at the University of Basel, at one of the university’s associated institutes or at a Basel university clinic. PhD students must be enrolled at the University of Basel. The program refers to women and people who are perceived as female.


Applications can only be made online via the relevant form. A link to the form can be found on the program’s web page. Please note that applications submitted via email or mail will not be taken into consideration. Applications are usually open between the first Monday in December and the second Sunday in January of the next year. The exact dates are published on the program’s web page.

All program dates can be viewed on the web page after the program is announced. Applicants must be committed to participating in all program content. Applicants will find out whether they have been admitted to the program no later than eight weeks after the application deadline.

Compulsory attendance

Participation in all elements of the program that are published on the website is mandatory for all participants. If, at the beginning of the program, participants do not commit to participating in all components of the program, their spot may be offered to another applicant. Non-attendance is only accepted in special circumstances (i.e. emergency, illness with a medical certificate). Participants will be excluded from the program if they fail to attend without a valid reason.

Proof of attendance

After successfully completing the program, participants will receive proof of attendance and a certificate at the closing event. The proof of attendance documents the completed training courses, coaching sessions and other activities, including the time spent and the performance spectrum.


Based on the proof of attendance, ECTS can be credited after individual agreement with the primary supervisor. 1 ECTS credit corresponds to approx. 25–30 work hours.
