Externally funded researchers are an important part of NIAS' in-house research base. NIAS is an open institute and we continue to expand the scope of our research and foster links with other research environments in the field of Asian studies.
Be a guest researcher at NIAS
NIAS is happy to host scholars on contemporary Asia on paid sabbatical leave or with other sources of external funding. You may base yourself at NIAS in Copenhagen, or opt for a more detached arrangement.
NIAS is open to researchers at all levels; PhD students, post-docs and senior researchers.
We offer excellent research facilities, including one of the best libraries in our field in Northern Europe, a good Nordic and world-wide network of contacts in Asian studies, and, not least an inspiring intellectual atmosphere. In return, we expect our researchers to be team players. We look for a willingness to contribute to the dynamic academic environment at NIAS.
If you are interested in staying at NIAS as a guest researcher for a shorter or longer period, please send an e-mail to project coordinator Katrine Herold at katrine.herold(at)nias.ku.dk. Please include your CV, a description of your current research topic and the approximate dates of your visit. Remember to write well in advance so there is a better chance that we have an available office.
