Khaled al-Asaad Solidarity Funds for researchers in danger - Call 2024

The Université libre de Bruxelles has created a Solidarity Funds in order to provide support for researchers who no longer have the freedom to pursue their research in their home country, where they are threatened due to the content of their scientific work or to the opinions they have freely expressed

The Khaled al-Asaad Solidarity Funds provides postdoctoral fellowships enabling threatened academics to continue their work at ULB in a climate of academic freedom. This call includes a specific section for Israeli and Palestinian researchers.

The solidarity fellowship consists in a one-year (12 months) postdoctoral position, amounting to 53,000 euros gross (approximately 35,460 euros net), plus a discretionary relocation allowance of 2,500 euros net (payable to researchers resident in another country, after their move to Belgium). The planned start date is September 2024.

The recipients will carry out research in a ULB research centre, supervised by a member of the University’s academic staff. They may, if they so wish, take part in teaching activities or any other scientific activities organised on campus.

Application deadline : 30 April 2024
