Granted proposals 2019
Every year the Delta Institute for Theoretical Physics has funded several PhD and postdoc positions, assigned to those research projects that best serve the general objectives of the Delta ITP initiative. The proposed projects all strengthened the Delta ITP cohesion, and should be applied by scientists from at least two of the three institutes.
The last call for research proposals was held in the Fall of 2019. Out of 11 postdoc proposals, 3 were awarded.
An internal representative selection committee evaluated and ranked the proposals, that besides scientific quality also weighted the urgency and added value for the Delta ITP consortium. This evaluation was then presented to the Delta ITP executive board who decided, based on the ranking and the available budget, to award 3 out of the 11 postdoc proposals this year. All projects will start in the Fall of 2020.
