New USIAS Fellows 2020

15 April 2020

USIAS is pleased to announce the 2020 selection of 15 new Fellows, who will be working on 13 Fellowship projects over the next years. USIAS Fellowships are awarded to excellent researchers from Strasbourg who want to venture into new directions of research outside of their comfort zone, and to leading international scholars across the globe who want to come to Strasbourg to work on ambitious, high quality research with Strasbourg researchers and facilities. The Fellowship programme is open to all academic disciplines.

The new Fellows will work on a wide range of topics, including the impact of sleep loss on depression, experimental evolution, human rights in the area of food, oscillatory organisation in the hippocampus, European social jurisprudence, Quantum Hall states, and poetry and social class in ancient Greece
