NIAS and the Municipality of Amsterdam invite scholars with expertise in the field of urban studies, education, sociology or anthropology to apply for a Urban Citizen Fellowship. This fellowship allows one to combine independent advanced research with concrete issues and concerns. Urban Citizenship Fellows spend five months at the Institute in a interdisciplinary, international community while working on a topic that contributes to the development of citizenship in Amsterdam. In the coming year (2022) the fellowship focuses on the topic of citizenship and education. Previous rounds of the fellowship have explored the local welfare state, political representation and immigrants’ rights.
Applicants should have at least three years of experience after obtaining a Ph.D. For more information about eligibility, what the fellowship offers and applying, see here.
