Het Nieuwe Instituut (The Netherlands) > Call for Fellows 2017

The Call for Fellows invites applicants to submit a research proposal with a unique perspective and specific methodology to address pressing contemporary questions in which architecture, design and digital culture play a part. This fellowship is also an opportunity to interact with and challenge the ongoing activities of the institute, amidst the wider context of the debate on the role of institutions.

Priority will be given to proposals that offer departures from established modes of thinking, develop a distinctive research methodology, activate multiple channels for dissemination of research outcomes, and construct a network of collaborators and other institutional contacts, both within the Netherlands and abroad. Applicants need not have a degree in the discipline they choose to investigate, but must display deep engagement with the subject matter. Neither a curriculum vitae nor letters of recommendation are requested. There is no age limit for applicants. Applicants of all citizenships and places of residence are welcome.

The fellowship is a 6-month position based at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. It includes a monthly stipend of 2,000 EUR and a return trip from the country of residence. Stipends may be subject to a withholding tax. Fellows are responsible for arranging their own accommodation. Fellows must be able to attend regular meetings in Rotterdam as well as a retreat of up to five days. The terms of the research fellowship will be agreed on an individual basis with respect to research subject, location and residence eligibility.

Deadline: 16 April 2017
