IIAS announces fellowships for Asian studies
October 1, 2014 - 00:00
The International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) in Leiden, Netherlands, invites outstanding researchers from around the world to apply for a fellowship to work on an important piece of Asian studies research in the social sciences and humanities. Interdisciplinary interests are encouraged. They also welcome researchers who would like to work on a collaborative grant proposal or develop their PhD thesis into book publication. The deadline for applications is 1 October 2014.
IIAS particularly wants to attract researchers focusing on the three IIAS clusters ‘Asian Cities’, ‘Asian Heritages’ and ‘Global Asia’. However some positions will be reserved for outstanding projects in any area outside of those listed. Applications that link to more than one field are also welcome. Applicants must have fulfilled all requirements of the PhD. If you are a PhD candidate at the time of application, you may also apply, provided that you graduate within 6 months after the application deadline. If you are applying for a grant from IIAS to cover your research period in the Netherlands, the fellowship will be tenable for a maximum period of 10 months.
