The University of Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Study (USIAS) was created in 2012 to fund excellent, original research in all scientific domains and to serve as a place of intellectual innovation. In order to realize this mission, USIAS welcomes excellent researchers from all countries and all disciplinary backgrounds in residence.
Each year, the Institute selects 10-20 fellows for a period of between three months to two years. Applications should be written in English to enable international peer review. Eligible candidates should be at least at the level of assistant professor (or equivalent) or beyond.
Fellowships are granted for a period of minimum 3 and maximum 24 months, and are expected to start during the period 01/05/2018 – 01/12/2018. The budget will be need-based, taking into account the differing requirements of different disciplines. The upper limit for the budget of the research is € 200,000. Applications will be available starting from September 2017.
