Scholarship Description:The IIAS fellowship application form is intended for all candidates who would like to apply for a position as ‘affiliated fellow‘ at IIAS, with the exception of those fellows who will be visiting IIAS in the framework of an (exchange) agreement. The positions are intended for outstanding post-doctoral researchers from around the world, to work on an important piece of research in the social sciences and humanities. Interdisciplinary interests are encouraged. They also welcome researchers who would like to work on a collaborative grant proposal or develop their PhD thesis into book publication.

On the application form, you will be asked to indicate to which cluster your proposed research relates, or to choose the “open category”.
