Apply for a fellowship to join our collaborative research community! We offer you an inspiring setting and various kinds of support to work on an interdisciplinary challenge together with other research fellows and IAS-affiliated researchers.
We regularly welcome researchers from the Netherlands and around the world as visiting fellows. The practical arrangements of the fellowship will be tailored to your personal situation.
|Country of residence||Minimum duration||Maximum duration|
|Netherlands||two months (fulltime)||one year (part-time)|
|EU||two months*||six months|
|Non-EU||two months*||three months|
* Shorter stays for qualified researchers can be proposed by IAS-affiliated researchers.
Please note that visiting fellows enjoy guest status; they are not employed by the IAS. Applicants must have an employment contract at another university or research institute during the period of the fellowship.
