University Research Fellow


Our University Research Fellowship is a programme developed for a select number of internationally renowned scientists at VU Amsterdam. It is a token of appreciation and a public tribute to the university’s most excellent scientists for their extraordinary research performances. These scientists will be entitled to reward the best student of their choice (nationally or internationally) with a University Research Fellow which will carry their own name. The Fellow will work together with the scientist for a maximum of 12 months on research or in their educational activities. The Fellowship starts in September 2018.
