Hanneke Ronnes (AHM), Hanneke Stuit (ASCA), Judith Noorman (ASH), Kristine Johanson (ASH), Sofie Remijsen (ASH), Suzanne Aalberse (ACLC), Sruti Bala (ASCA), and Patricia Pisters (ASCA) have been awarded a temporary release from teaching duties to enable them to strengthen their CV and/or prepare applications for senior personal grants.
The UvA FGw Aspasia Fund aims to support women in their career development within the Faculty of Humanities at the UvA and to expand their opportunities to conduct research.
The Fund was made available by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) as part of Aspasia grants awarded to UvA researchers Yolande Jansen, Danielle van den Heuvel, Jill Hilditch and Justyna Wubs, earlier in 2017, and before Yolanda Rodríguez Pérez, Esther Peeren and Judith Rispens. A condition of the NWO grant is that part of the premium is used for diversity policy measures, which increase the career development of female staff within the institution.
The eight academics will use the release time to strengthen their CV and to prepare applications for NWO Vidi/Vici grants or ERC Starting/Consolidator/Advanced grants.
