Current research projects

You can now apply for the Research Traineeship Programme 2023. In the proposals below you can find more information on how to apply for each project.

The deadline to apply is Friday 18 November 2022.

Please note the following:

  • In order to be eligible for the traineeship you have to be a third-year BA or (res)MA student registered with the Faculty of Humanities for the entire period of the traineeship (1 February until the 31 August 2023). This means you cannot graduate early.
  • All students have to be in the Netherlands in order to take part in the traineeship.
  • Students from outside of the EU/EER need a valid Dutch health insurance. Please arrange this yourself before the start of the traineeship. If necessary, the university will also request a work permit.
