The Herbert Simon Research Institute visiting fellowship program

One of the objectives of the HSRI is to strengthen the profile of our research, both at the national and international level. We foresee a research institute with a strong international reputation being a breeding ground for exciting and innovative research in the realm of Health, Well-being and Adaptiveness and a meeting place for academics who want to work at the forefront of scientific knowledge, together with other academics both in the Netherlands as well abroad.

 In order to stimulate this, one of the venues of achieving this is to open up the possibility of inviting both internationally renown fellow-researchers as well as promising talented young researchers. This will be made possible through the HSRI visiting fellowship program.

The Herbert Simon Research Institute offers the possibility for both senior and junior academics to spend some time at our School.

Senior research fellows

You can opt for a stay up to 3 months with a minimum of one month. Applications can be send in by the Department. Candidates should meet with the following criteria:

  • solid, international reputation in the field
  • working together with one or more of the members of the department
  • presenting a research seminar
  • aiming for joint output (paper) or joint grant application

The funding (covering travel, stay and offering office space, computer and library facilities) is based on co-financing by the Department and School/HSRI (each 50%) and is limited up to Euro 10.000 and based on a maximum of one senior research fellow per Department per year.

Junior research fellows

You are invited for a stay of a few weeks (1-2 weeks) by the Department.  The Department focuses on spotting one or two talented candidates per year and invites them for a short stay at the Department. Requirements:

  • talented young academics (< 35 years)
  • active in the area of the research program of the Department and or one of the themes of HSRI
  • willing to present recent work, paper
  • eager to work together with one or more members of the Department

Expenses such as travel and stay will be covered by the Department, while at the same time offering office space, computer and library facilities.

Participation in the visiting fellowship program is upon invitation only. Departments can propose candidates by sending a request to the Director of the HSRI.
