20 March 2019 - The Lisa Jardine Fellowship, sponsored by Leiden University, the British Embassy and the National Library of the Netherlands (KB) is in honor of Prof. Lisa Jardine (1944-2015) and affords an early career female scholar from an UK university the opportunity to work on an Anglo-Dutch cultural studies topic related to the history and philosophy. The fellowship is a collaboration between NIAS and the Scaliger Institute of Leiden University, the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, National Library of the Netherlands in The Hague and The British Embassy in The Hague.
About the Lisa Jardine Fellowship
The Lisa Jardine Fellowship wishes to reflect Lisa Jardine’s areas of interest by offering a fellowship to an outstanding female early modern scholar.
The fellowship is specifically aimed at a scholar who is working on Anglo-Dutch material, preferably but not exclusively with an interdisciplinary focus that bridges both Arts & Science.
Given this is the first time the fellowship will be granted, the successful candidate will be expected to give a public lecture on their research and be willing to become a future ambassador for the fellowship.
Who can apply
The Lisa Jardine fellowship is open to female researchers within five years of completing a PhD at a recognized UK university. At the time of application the applicant must be affiliated to a British University department, a library, museum, gallery or other non-profit heritage organisation.
The fellows research must be on an Anglo-Dutch cultural studies topic related to the history and philosophy of science that may encompass history of art or other interdisciplinary approaches to the natural sciences, including physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, engineering, agricultural, biological or medical research or the scientific aspects of archaeology, geography and experimental psychology. Special consideration will be given to Early Modern (e.g. 1550-1750) topics and other areas that were of interest to Professor Lisa Jardine.
