URIS - Ukrainian Research in Switzerland
The initiative “Ukrainian Research in Switzerland” (URIS) announces two fellowships once a year. They are open to postdoctoral and senior scholars in the humanities, cultural studies and social sciences whose research has the potential to make a substantial contribution to a better understanding of the history, society, politics and culture of Ukraine.
The “URIS fellowship” enables the recipient to spend six months researching at the University of Basel (February–July or August–January) and will be awarded on the basis of excellence criteria. The initiative is looking for internationally recognized researchers who are prepared to be involved in the network of Swiss Ukraine research and to offer a Ukraine-related course at the University of Basel during their stay in Switzerland. The recipient is obliged to reside in Basel for the duration of the fellowship. The awarding of the fellowship will be decided by an academic advisory board.
