From its 2024 call for proposals, the University of Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Study (USIAS) has selected a total of 14 Fellowship projects, involving 16 researchers of seven different nationalities.

These projects, spread evenly over the natural sciences, the life sciences and the social sciences and humanities, cover a range of exciting topics including nuclear quantum dynamics, complex host-pathogenic bacteria interactions, new forms of earth observation, disorders of the bodily self, and the study of pagan women in ancient Rome.

Fellows from Brazil, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States will come to spend time in Strasbourg and will be welcomed by a co-Fellow or host within one of the university’s research units to facilitate their integration into the vibrant academic community. For the other Fellows that are part of the 2024 cohort and already based in Strasbourg, the aim is to allow them to develop their research in new directions with innovative and original ideas.

The Fellowship programme is open to researchers from all domains and countries. This latest call brings the number of Fellows supported since 2012 to the grand total of 230, with whom USIAS has been proud to collaborate.
