NIAS-Lorentz Theme-Group Fellowships
A NIAS-Lorentz Theme Group (NLTG) is an international group of three 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 three 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 (e.g. ERC). 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.
The NIAS-Lorentz Theme Group is:
- An international group of NLTG members made up of 3 persons for 5 consecutive months. The NLTG coordinator can apply for a NLTG in the second semester (February – June) of the academic year.
- All NLTG members hold individual fellowships at NIAS, including a study and daily travel expenses or, if from abroad, subsidized accommodation.
- NLTG members from abroad can apply for a stipend and NLTG members from a Dutch university can apply for a Dutch University Grant, given to their home institution. Both are set on €2,500 per month.
- A workshop at the Lorentz Center on the NLTG topic, with full organizational support and a budget of € 10,000.
