Starting from August 2018, The Institute of Trandisciplinary Discoveries is offering up to 3 Visiting Fellowship positions, each up to 6 months duration, which are to be held at the Institute, University of Pécs, Hungary. We are now inviting proposals towards appointing these fellowships. Each application needs to propose a topic of that will bring together various disciplines, with at least some aspects touching on the current theme of the Institute: Ageing. One relevant criteria is that at least some aspect of the project should engage with existing research and studies at the University of Pécs, the oldest University in Hungary, and one of the major higher education institutes in the country, with 10 faculties, 32 clinics and a winery research facility. In the same transdisciplinary vein, we would also encourage engagement and contributions from one of the social or business stakeholders in Pécs.

Awardees are expected to give seminars on their chosen topic to students in English approximately once every 2 weeks.

Each Fellowship has a value of (€ 3,000) to cover living expenses.
