ECAS is pleased to announce that the Lower Saxony – Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme is entering the next round of the Open Call.

The proven concept remains in place: Early career researchers, who have completed their PhD within the last 10 years and have an employment contract with a Scottish or Lower Saxonian higher education institution are invited to apply for the programme, which is an excellent opportunity to conduct research in a cross-national exchange at the most recognised higher education institutions in Lower Saxony and Scotland.

The tandem concept foresees that two researchers from both regions form a tandem working on a joint project. Short-term stays (from at least one up to six months) in the partnership region are funded with 1,200 Euro per person per month.

Applications must be submitted until 15 May 2022.

For the Open Call for Applications, as well as any further information on the programme, the application procedure and the list of participating institutions (which is constantly being expanded) please visit: Tandem Fellowship.
