Young International Academics for interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellows
The University of Luxembourg has secured funding from the European Union's flagship research program, within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND. The funding will support ambitious postdoctoral research projects at the Institute for Advanced Studies - Luxembourg (IAS).
The Young International Academics (YIA) postdoctoral programme is an innovative career development programme hosted by the IAS to nurture early-career postdoctoral applicants to advance their interdisciplinary/intersectoral research. The programme began on May 1, 2023, with a total budget of four million euros.
YIA candidates are international talents implementing their own research projects through a bottom-up approach. Spread over two calls, the YIA programme invites a total of 10 postdoctoral fellows with 36-month contracts each, over a programme-lifespan of 5 years.
A unique feature of the YIA is its integration into Uni.lu’s IAS, which promotes excellence and interdisciplinarity in research. For YIA fellows, the IAS provides an excellent environment for interdisciplinary research, mentoring by IAS fellows and an international approach promoting diversity and excellence.
To be selected in this programme, which is open to all disciplines, candidates will have to bridge at least two distinct fields in bold, original, and high impact research.
Candidates will be invited to submit their proposal, which will be evaluated and ranked by an independent reviewer panel in two waves:
Multilingual and international character. Modern institution with a personal atmosphere. Staff coming from 90 countries. Member of the “University of the Greater Region” (UniGR).
A modern and dynamic university. High-quality equipment. Close ties to the business world and to the Luxembourg labour market. A unique urban site with excellent infrastructure.
A partner for society and industry. Cooperation with European institutions, innovative companies, the Financial Centre and with numerous non-academic partners such as ministries, local governments, associations, NGOs …
The University of Luxembourg embraces inclusion and diversity as key values. We are fully committed to removing any discriminatory barrier related to gender, and not only, in recruitment and career progression of our staff.
