ULB solidarity fund fellowships for scholars at risk: call for applications

16 March 2018

The Université Libre de Bruxelles has created a Solidarity Fund to provide support for researchers who no longer have the freedom to pursue their research in their home country, where they are threatened due to the content of their scientific work or to the opinions they have freely expressed.

The Solidarity Fund provides postdoctoral fellowships enabling threatened academics to continue their work at ULB in a climate of academic freedom.

The solidarity fellowship consists in a one-year (12 months) postdoctoral position, amounting to 42,000 euros gross (approximately 29,000 euros net), plus a discretionary relocation allowance of 2,500 euros net (payable to researchers resident in another country, after their move to Belgium).

Four fellowships will be awarded this year. The recipients will carry out research in a ULB research centre, supervised by a member of the University’s academic staff. They may, if they so wish, take part in teaching activities or any other scientific activities organised on campus.

Read the call for applications for more information about qualifications, requirements, and the application procedure.

Applications must be submitted by 25 April 2018
Fellowships will start between 1-15 September 2018
