Radboud Excellence professorship
A professorship candidate:
- is a highly experienced top researcher (ERC Advanced, Spinoza, KNAW member or likewise)
- is still active in research and has not yet retired
- is a non-Dutch national based outside the Netherlands, who has no previous study or work experience in the Netherlands
- will work on a research project that links up with research performed within the nominator's research institute. The candidate will contribute to a next step for the research domain within Radboud University or Radboudumc, and its international profiling.
- will stay at Radboud University for at least 4-6 weeks and a maximum of a half year. The latter may be completed in 2x3 months or 3x2 months, spread over a period of two years.
Radboud Excellence fellowship
A fellowship candidate:
- obtained their PhD at least before the start of the fellowship, but no longer than eight years before the nomination date. The submission date of the manuscript may count as the doctorate date. Should a candidate only have obtained their doctorate very recently, the quality of their CV, above-average performances and excellent recommendations should compensate for this.
- is a non-Dutch national based outside the Netherlands, who has international experience and has no previous study or work experience in the Netherlands
- will expect their fellowship to contribute to a future career move, such as a potential professorship.
Considerations for selection
The quality of the candidate and their research plan should be evident from the submitted documents, as listed in the procedure. Considerations for selection are:
- The excellence of the candidate - as shown in the nomination documents.
- The quality of the recommendations - as shown in the recommendation letters.
- The innovative character of the research proposal - as shown in the research plan.
The jury aims to have Radboud Excellence laureates spread across various scientific domains within Radboud University and Radboudumc.
