Joint IAS-DSC Fellowship Programme

2023 call for applications now open!

The UvA Data Science Centre (DSC) and Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) are joining forces for the second time by opening up a joint fellowship opportunity. We welcome applications for their second DSC/IAS Joint Fellowship Call on Beneficial Disruptions in Science and Research.

For this call, the IAS and DSC are looking for proposals that are aligned with the theme Beneficial Disruptions in Science and Research. They explicitly welcome joint applications from small teams of researchers that combine expertise in data science and other research areas, possibly in combination with philosophy of science and science and technology approaches.

A PhD degree is a minimum requirement for at least one of the applicants. The applicant(s) is/are required to have demonstrable (combined) expertise in both Data Science/Machine Learning and another discipline.

Fellowships usually have a duration between 2 - 6 months and start in September 2023. For non-EU nationals, the maximum duration of fellowships is 3 months. However, fellowship duration and start date can be tailored to individual needs.

Deadline for applications: Monday 1 May 2023
