Research fellows 

Meant for inviting top researchers for 1-3 months to the UvA. There are two kinds of fellowships:

  • A Junior Fellow carries out research in the field of history of humanities and/or sciences, and presents her/his work at a colloquium at the Vossius Center, public lectures or/and research seminars. We encourage that the junior fellow’s work lead to a funding application.
  • A Senior Fellow, in addition, establishes or consolidates a concrete collaboration with one or more members of the Vossius Center preferably leading to a joint project proposal.

Candidates should have a clear affinity with the history of humanities and/or sciences. Fellows are expected to participate in the activities of the Vossius Center whenever possible. For further information about the funded costs please contact us at vossius@uva.nl.

Procedure 

Submit a 750-word proposal, CV of the guest researcher, a letter of recommendation of one of the members of the Vossius Center, and a budget. The budget can include travel and subsistence costs. For subsistence, the maximum budget is 1500 Euro per month for  junior fellows, and 2000 Euro per month for senior fellows.
