postdoctoral research grant
For 2015 the Niels Stensen Fellowship Committee* is again looking for young postdoctoral researchers who have shown outstanding ability in research and knowledge transfer. Professors in the Netherlands are invited to nominate candidates who are expected to continue to distinguish themselves academically in the future and who could assume prominent positions at Dutch academic institutions.

Candidates for a Niels Stensen Fellowship must be nominated by two professors from a Dutch university or research institute. We invite you, as a professor, to write a nomination letter of no more than one page, on official letterhead and signed by you personally. Please also mention the candidate’s name, address details and personal email address in your letter. We would like to receive the nominations by 1 May 2015 at the latest. Please note that the following criteria must also be met: • Candidates must receive their Ph.D. at a Dutch university in the period between 15 June 2014 and 15 June 2016 (final approval of their thesis must be granted no later than 31 December 2015). • Candidates must be socially committed and must demonstrate this commitment in a paper on how their research relates to society
