The Netherlands Institute for the Near East is offering two Student Research Assistantships each year. The first call for applications is now open!
This new funding opportunity from NINO supports a senior researcher and a student (BA or MA) working together on a joint project. The student gains experience and acquires new skills, while the researcher receives support for an ongoing project. The project benefits both parties. The scheme covers the costs of a 0,2 fte (one day per week) student assistantship for a period of max. nine months.
The student must be enrolled at a Dutch university during the course of the assistantship, at BA or MA level; the supervisor must be employed at a Dutch university. Their joint project can last for a maximum of nine months. Successful candidates will be asked to write a brief report or blogpost about their research project for the NINO website and/or newsletter.
The project must fall within the scope of interest of NINO’s activities: Ancient Near Eastern studies and (closely) related fields.
The first call for applications is now open. Deadline for application is 15 November 2018; the winning Student Research Assistant may be appointed starting from February 2019.
The next call for applications will open in February, deadline 15 May (start assistantship in September/October 2019).
One student assistant will be funded at each call. Unsuccessful applications can be re-submitted.
Student and researcher prepare a joint application; it is the student’s responsibility to submit the application correctly and timely.
