‘FRENCH INSTITUTES FOR ADVANCED STUDY’ (FIAS) CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 2022/2023
The French Institutes for Advanced Study Fellowship Programme offers 10-month fellowships in the five Institutes of Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier and Nantes. It welcomes applications from high-level international scholars and scientists primarily in the fields of the social sciences and the humanities (SSH).
For the 2022-2023 academic year, FIAS offers 28 fellowship positions: 17 in Paris, 4 in Marseille, 3 in Montpellier and 4 in Nantes.
The call is open to all disciplines in the SSH and all research fields. Research projects from other sciences that propose a transversal dialogue with SSH are also eligible. Some of the IAS have scientific priorities they will focus on more specifically. At MAK’IT, the fellows’ research projects must address transitions towards sustainable development and tackle, in a transversal way, MAK’IT three main action areas: Agriculture & Food, Environment and Health.
MAK’IT’s fellows must be invited and are hosted by a research structure from the Montpellier University of Excellence (MUSE) consortium of their choice. This arrangement enables them to be fully integrated in the local research environment, while benefitting from the support and conducive scientific environment offered by an IAS, in an interdisciplinary cohort of fellows. The fellows will be free to organize their work and conduct research as they wish.
