The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Amsterdam invites applications for two (2) visiting research fellowships in the field of Modern Greek Studies for early-career and more advanced scholars who wish to pursue part of their research at the University of Amsterdam. Applicants for both fellowships are required to hold a Ph.D. For the academic year 2021-2022, 1 fellowship will be offered to an early-career scholar (with a Ph.D. not earlier than 2015) for a period of 5 months, and 1 fellowship will be offered to a more experienced scholar (with a Ph.D. between 2001 and 2015) for a period of 5 months.

The fellowships are sponsored by the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, which is also the main sponsor of the Marilena Laskaridis Chair of Modern Greek Studies at the University of Amsterdam, held by Prof. Dr. Maria Boletsi.

These fellowships are offered annually on a competitive basis and by application. The fellowships aim to strengthen research in the field of Modern Greek studies at the University of Amsterdam and internationally, encourage academic collaborations and exchanges, and give the opportunity to young and more experienced scholars in this field to advance their research.

Who can apply?

Early-career scholars with a Ph.D. and more experienced scholars who wish to carry out part of their research in the field of Modern Greek Studies at the University of Amsterdam. The call is open to projects from all disciplines in the humanities and/or social sciences that engage with aspects of Modern Greek culture and/or history. Scholars pursuing comparative projects that may not focus (exclusively) on Greece but situate Modern Greek culture in broader, transnational contexts are also encouraged to apply. The call for applications is open both for scholars affiliated with other academic institutions (e.g., universities or research institutes) and independent scholars with a Ph.D.
