Two guest-researcher positions available

Nias logo update

NIAS is now offering two guest-researcher positions in late 2016 for the duration of 1 to 3 months.

NIAS academic aim is to promote inter-disciplinary, cross-cultural and thus comparative research. Its focal point is the role and impact of Asia in a globalizing world. Of special interest is the growing importance that Asia has for the Nordic region, including Asia and the changing Arctic.The current research focus at NIAS was formulated in 2010. The theme, called Mapping the Human Landscapes of EurAsia: Dealing with Cultural Differences in a Globalized World, offers a means for the majority of research projects at NIAS to work together, expand internationally and seek higher levels of funding.

The offer is eligible for scholars at Nordic universities and covers travel expenses and reasonable accommodation as well as a modest monthly grant. Conditions are flexible and will be negotiated upon agreement between the guest-researcher and NIAS.

Application deadline is 9 September 2016 at noon.
