Up to 10 fellowships are available for curiosity-driven, talented researchers from all over the world and within all research disciplines. The new AIAS-AUFF Fellowships have a duration of 23 months, starting on 1 September 2024.

As a fellow you will benefit from the international and multidisciplinary environment at AIAS that brings researchers together across disciplines, academic seniority and borders in a thriving and creative house.

You are offered the time and space to immerse yourself in your research project, and at the same time also be inspired and interrupted intellectually by the conversations and exchanges with the other fellows that will give you fresh and different insights, methods and perspectives on your own research, thinking and practice.

Fellows are also expected to take actively part in seminars, cross-disciplinary conversations and other collaborative activities that contribute to uphold the inspiring and challenging community of scholars at AIAS.

A fellowship includes

  • A salary based on seniority (employment conditions and wages are regulated through the Danish collective union agreements)
  • A fellowship for 23 month (commencing on 1 September 2024)
  • Relocation travel costs
  • Relocation, on-boarding and off-boarding assistance.

Fellows will have office space at AIAS and can participate in the academic training activities, conferences and workshops at AIAS and at Aarhus University. They will also be affiliated with the relevant research environments at Aarhus University.

Who can apply for an AIAS-AUFF Fellowship?

As the fellowships aim at enhancing internationalization and interdisciplinary networks at Aarhus University, a mobility demand applies. This means that researchers are eligible for application if they have not resided in Denmark in more than 12 months within the last two years prior to the application deadline.

Moreover, applicants most hold a Ph.D.-degree and a minimum of two and up to ten years of experience at the time of application.

Researchers from any academic discipline can apply with a novel and explorative research project.
