USIAS Strasbourg Fellowships

Call illustration

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 reach this objective, USIAS welcomes excellent researchers from all countries and all disciplinary backgrounds. Each year, the Institute selects around 15 Fellows for a period of between three months to two years.

Fellowships are available to researchers:

  • From outside of Strasbourg, wishing to carry out research in interaction with researchers at the University of Strasbourg and/or to use a specific Strasbourg research facility. Eligible candidates should be at the level of at least assistant professor (tenure track) or equivalent.
  • From Strasbourg wishing to work on particularly original research ideas, seeking to apply their knowledge and skills to new domains outside of their current field of work. Joint projects with an external applicant are particularly encouraged. Eligible candidates should hold a permanent post and be at least at the level of maître de conférences or chargé de recherche (or equivalent).

Applications from emeritus professors can be considered. Applicants holding a non-permanent position, e.g. post-doctorate, are not eligible to apply.

Joint Fellowships can be submitted, with a maximum of three applicants for any one project.

Applications should be written in English (with the exception of research related to French language and literature; see full guidelines) to enable international peer review.
