The fellowship is for independent research in any of the University’s excellence areas, and in particular, for this call, any topic in brain and cognition research.
The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour is a world-class interfaculty research centre, housing more than 700 researchers devoted to understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of the human mind. Research at the Donders Institute focuses around four themes:
1. Language and communication
2. Perception, action and control
3. Plasticity and memory
4. Neural Computation and Neurotechnology
Excellent, state-of-the-art research facilities are available for a broad range of neuroscience research. The Donders Institute fosters a collaborative, multidisciplinary, supportive research environment with a diverse international staff. English is the lingua franca at the Institute.
The Radboud Excellence Fellowship is a university-wide initiative in which fellows are expected, besides conducting their research, to actively engage in an interdisciplinary/cultural programme with fellows from other departments. Radboud University appoints approximately 20 fellows a year.
This two-year fellowship is open to non-Dutch postdoctoral researchers based outside the Netherlands having no previous study or work experience in the Netherlands. You should hold a PhD in a relevant field, obtained two to eight years prior to the closing date of this call.
The intended start date is 1 January 2020.
