Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society – Workspace for PhDs and Scholars from UkraineLocation: Location: The Netherlands | Workplace: On site

The Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society offers five visiting researcher places (unpaid) to refugee PhD students and scholars from Ukraine who are currently located in the Netherlands. They provide applicants with a bridging opportunity to continue existing research that was interrupted due to the war, to work out an application for an externally funded research or job opportunity or to pursue a related CV-building project. The places are available with immediate effect.

This call will stay open for as long as there are available places. Applicants can be PhD students, early career researchers or experienced researchers in the humanities working in fields such as literary history and theory, film and media studies, and art, architectural and book history. More information on the LUCAS research agenda can be found here. Applicants should have a sufficient command of English. We offer to integrate applicants in LUCAS’ research community by matching them with a mentor who can help coordinate their next steps. We also offer working space in our office facilities, computing facilities and access to the university library so that applicants can continue their research. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us via e-mail. No formal application is necessary. It suffices to send us a short explanation of how your work fits in with LUCAS so we can assess how we can best help you. If you have a CV at hand, you can send it to us as well.
