Visiting scholar programme
CSG’s Visiting Scholar Programme provides researchers based outside the Netherlands with the opportunity to spend 2-3 months at CSG Centre for Society and Life Sciences in Nijmegen or one of its affiliated research groups spread around the country.
In close co-operation with CSG or the affiliated research group, the candidate will formulate a tailor-made project. The project will be carried out in an inspiring academic environment. Visiting scholars will take part in CSG’s as well as the group’s activities.
The programme is open for talented researchers, having a MSc or PhD grade, with demonstrable experience and quality who work on the interface of the life sciences and society. As well as working on a specific research topic, the visiting scholar will actively contribute to CSG’s aims, objectives and visibility on several dimensions: academic, in public discussions and debate, and in terms of networking. As a rule of thumb every visiting scholar will deliver at least one public lecture, one academic lecture and one workshop for CSG-researchers.
CSG will reimburse travelling costs and, if desired, accommodation (with a maximum of € 800 per month). The institute hosting the visiting scholar will provide a workspace, computer and printing facilities, etc.
An application is accompanied by a proposal describing the research that will be conducted during the stay and a short resume (all in English). Download the proposal format
The proposal will show the added value of the candidate for the research group that is visited. An overview of CSG’s current projects can be found here. Proposals will be assessed by CSG’s management team, within 6 weeks after reception of all relevant materials. If additional information is required, CSG may extend that period. The scholarship lasts two to three months, preferably but not necessarily in one visit.
Applications can be submitted at any time using the application form.
