Marie Curie Individual Fellowships

The Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS) based at the University of Copenhagen is interested in nominating candidates for Marie Curie Individual Fellowships. These EU-funded European Fellowships:

  • are open to researchers moving within Europe, as well as those coming in from other parts of the world.
  • can restart a research career after a break, such as parental leave.
  • can help researchers coming back to Europe find a new position.

To apply, you will need a completed PhD, a very strong academic profile and a research proposal of up to 10 pages, in a field involving Asian studies.

NIAS is a regional institute established in 1968, with its own academic press and library services. Administratively, it is located within the Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen (see www.nias.ku.dk).

NIAS supports work in all areas of Asian studies across the social sciences and humanities, but has particular strengths on East and Southeast Asia. Special areas of current interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Climate and sustainability
  • Comparative politics
  • International relations, especially relations between the Nordic region and Asia
  • Gender
  • Digital media

Because this scheme supports mobility, applicants presently based in Denmark or those who have spent 12 months or more in Denmark over the last three years are not eligible.

Anyone interested in applying should send a CV and a two page outline research proposal to NIAS Director, Duncan McCargo, duncan(at)nias.ku.dk, as an initial expression of interest by 25 July 2020. We will work with selected applicants to prepare the final application and nominate them for the Marie Curie fellowship scheme. Please note that we do not hold any funding ourselves: we are simply making nominations to the programme, with no certainty of success.
