CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Deadline for applications: 2 October 2017 (13.00 CET)
The University of Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Study (USIAS) was created in 2012 to fund excellent, original research in all scientific domains and to serve as a place of intellectual innovation.
In order to realize this mission, USIAS welcomes excellent researchers from all countries and all disciplinary backgrounds in residence. Each year, the Institute selects 10-20 fellows for a period of between three months to two years.
Fellowships are available to both promising young scholars and excellent advanced researchers from outside of Strasbourg, wishing to carry out research in collaboration with researchers at the University of Strasbourg and/or to use a specific Strasbourg research facility.
In addition, excellent researchers already based at the University of Strasbourg wishing to work on particularly original research ideas, seeking to apply their knowledge and skills to new domains outside of their current field of work, are welcome to apply, especially when jointly with an external collaborator.
