Nordic Post-doc Introductory Stipends

Posted in News/Information, Research by Pippa on August 27, 2009

Finished your Ph.D. within the social sciences in an Asian related topic?
Looking for an opportunity to continue your research?
Searching for a special place to concentrate on this?

NIAS is now open for applications from young scholars who need time and freedom to concentrate on developing their post-doc project. With excellent library facilities, a modern publishing unit, and research staff dealing with different aspects of modern Asia, you can hardly find a more suitable or inspiring working place.

The offer includes a three-month stay at NIAS on a salary that follows existing Danish university standards. We do not provide housing, but will assist in directing your way to accommodations.

Certain conditions apply:

  • Recipients of a NIAS introductory stipend have to commit themselves, while at NIAS, to write an application for long term research funding (minimum 2 years)
  • Project funding must include a 25% institutional overhead for NIAS
  • Successful applicants will be offered a research position at NIAS. If they wish to continue an affiliation with their home institute, an arrangement will be negotiated so the candidate can divide his/her time between the relevant institutions.

Interested? Here is how to proceed:

E-mail us a short draft (max. 3 pp) of your research proposal.
Attach an updated CV and a copy of your Ph.D. diploma.
Add two references that we can contact.
Suggest your preferred period of stay.

Three stipend positions are vacant from October 2009 to June 2010. The deadline for applications is September 1st 2009.

Applications will be evaluated by the NIAS research staff in collaboration with representatives from the Nordic NIAS Council.
