Duration

A fellowship at AIAS typically lasts between one and three years. A senior fellowship varies from 6 up to 18 months, and a junior fellowship will have the duration from 12 up to 36 months. Duration, however, is negotiable to suit the needs and wishes of the fellows, and in terms of what is suitable and realistic in relation to the research objective of the proposed research project.

What is a JCS fellowship?

A JCS Fellowship can be applied by to researchers with an existing affiliation to Aarhus University, i.e. researchers who are already employed at Aarhus University at the time of application as well as the time of fellowship commencement. 

What is a junior and a senior fellowship respectively?

We regard juniors as researchers with postdoctoral research careers of a length of 2-10 years, whereas seniors are researchers at a high international level, equivalent to professors or highly qualified associate professors with postdoctoral research careers of +10 years.
