NIAS-Lorentz Theme-Group Fellowships

A NIAS-Lorentz Theme Group (NLTG) is an international group of either three or five researchers who do cutting-edge research that bridges the divide between the humanities and/or social sciences and the natural and/or technological sciences.

A NIAS-Lorentz Theme Group (NLTG) is an international group of either three or five researchers including the coordinator. All NLTG members hold fellowships at NIAS, providing them the opportunity to work as a team and engage in the kind of intensive interdisciplinary collaboration that is often difficult to realize in a regular academic setting. They specifically work as a group on cutting-edge research that bridges the divide between the humanities and/or social sciences and the natural and/or technological sciences. This can lead to concrete outcomes such as an edited volume, a scientific paper or a project proposal for external funding. Being part of an NLTG is particularly intended to benefit early/mid-career researchers who wish to explore and open a new interdisciplinary field of research through close interaction with theme group members from other scientific disciplines.

Practical information

  • NLTG fellowships (3x5mth) include accommodation (or local travel expenses up to max. 300 euro pm), lunches, study, research facilities (computer, library services etc). International scholars are eligible for one return ticket to NIAS.
  • NLTG fellows from the Netherlands are eligible to teaching replacement funds equivalent to a junior or senior stipend depending on their academic status. NLTG fellows from abroad are eligible for a junior or senior stipend depending on their academic status.

 

Scholars who are interested in the NIAS-Lorentz Program can find detailed information on the NIAS-Lorentz website.
