AIAS welcomes 8 new fellows

Tomorrow on 1 February 2018, AIAS will give a warm welcome to eight new fellows who will begin their fellowship at AIAS to delve into their research projects, lasting from one up to three years.

The group of 8 new AIAS Fellows are a part of a cohort of 23 researchers selected in an open, international review process in the Spring/Summer of 2017. The first 15 of this cohort began at AIAS in October 2017. Five of the eight new fellows who will begin this week are international AIAS-COFUND Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellows, 3 are internal Jens Christian Skou Fellows, i.e. researchers already employed at Aarhus University. With this new group of fellows, AIAS will host a total number of 38 fellows from around the globe from all academic research areas.

On Monday 5 February both current and new fellows will present their research question and why this is of importance in 6-minute talks at the Extended Fellows’ Seminar: Joint Research Presentation at AIAS. This seminar, as goes for the rest of the Fellows’ Seminars, is open to all – join this to meet and get in dialogue with the new and current fellows.

Novel projects, AIAS diversity and Aarhus University collaboration

While at AIAS, the new AIAS fellows will have time to concentrate on and develop their individual research projects, but the infrastructure of AIAS also strongly supports and encourages collaboration and networking with Aarhus University faculty members and the research environments at Aarhus University and between the new, ‘old’ and ‘former’ AIAS fellows.
