Application procedure

If you are interested in applying for the programme, please first contact the scientist(s) or engineer(s) at ASTRON/JIVE with whom you want to collaborate. Together with your local collaborator(s), you should set up a project or research plan what you want to work on during your visit first, describing the technical details of the subject.

A Helena Kluyver visit can cover a period of three weeks up to a maximum of three months. Candidates of any nationality are eligible to be considered for the programme. Though recent PhD graduates are eligible to apply, priority will be given to advanced-career researchers.

To apply, please send an email to helenakluyverATastron.nl, which includes the following documents:
  • your CV and publication list
  • proposed dates of your visit
  • names of your collaborators within ASTRON/JIVE
  • a one page research proposal outlining the plans and goals for your visit
  • a budget request, assistance for estimating the local expenses will be provided

If you are a recent PhD with less than 3 years post-doctoral experience, you should also send two letters of reference.

There are no fixed deadlines for the application, but the information should be available at least 2 months prior to your intended visit. The programme coordinator will evaluate your proposal and inform you about the decision as soon as possible.
