The position of International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) affiliated fellow is intended for outstanding researchers from around the world, to work on an important aspect of Asian studies research in the social sciences and humanities. Interdisciplinary interests are encouraged. The IIAS also welcome researchers who would like to work on a collaborative grant proposal or develop their PhD thesis into a book publication.

IIAS is an institute that actively promotes innovative research and seeks the interconnection between academic disciplines. In doing so, we are particularly looking for researchers focusing on the three IIAS clusters 'Asian Cities', 'Asian Heritages' and 'Global Asia'. However some positions will be reserved for outstanding projects in any area outside of those listed. Applications that link to more than one field are also welcome. On the application form, you will be asked to indicate to which cluster your proposed research relates, or to choose the "open category". You are also asked to indicate how your proposed research may contribute to the general vision of IIAS and its emphasis on interconnected studies.
