Call for Nominations Distinguished NIAS-Lorentz Fellowship 2023-24

NIAS and the Lorentz Center call to nominate one or more candidates for the Distinguished Lorentz Fellowship 2023-24. Persons who may nominate include: rectors and deans of Dutch universities, members of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and of the Young Academy (DJA), the board of the Dutch Network of Women Professors (LNVH), directors of KNAW, NWO and TNO institutes and directors of museums or industrial organizations with a research agenda.

Nominees are outstanding researchers with an excellent academic track record and the capacity to bring together researchers from necessary disciplines. The proposed fellowship research is firmly embedded within the Dutch scientific community and should explicitly address how the interdisciplinary approach is essential to achieving the research goals. Relevance to current societal issues is valued. Nominees should have an interest to actively join the interdisciplinary community of NIAS fellows.  


The Distinguished NIAS-Lorentz Fellowship (DNLF) receives:

  • A fellowship at NIAS for 5 months between September - January. It includes a stipend or university grant, office space, communal lunch, and if applicable, subsidized accommodation.
  • A workshop at the Lorentz Center on the fellowship topic, with full organizational support and a budget of €20,000 for travel and hotel reimbursements.


The deadline for the DNLF 2023-24 nomination is 1 November 2022.

Please note that the next round for DNLF nominations (for 2024-25) will be open from 15 January until 15 April 2023.  


More information about how to nominate and what a DNLF nomination should contain can be found on the NIAS-Lorentz website.
