The application procedure closed on 4 February 2019.
Applications will be divided over the various Faculty research institutes. Each research institute has established a selection committee under the supervision of the institute director. This committee will assess all applications and references.
Each selection committee will draw up a top 2 or top 3 of the best candidates, depending on the number of applications for each discipline and the excellence of the candidates. These 2 to 3 candidates of the seven research institutes add up to a shortlist of about 18 to 20 candidates. These candidates will be invited to spend a day at the Faculty in March/April 2019 (see below for the exact dates).
This day at the Faculty will consist of a public presentation to be held by the candidate in the morning and a 30 minute interview with the selection committee in the afternoon. The selection committee will consist of a female chair, institute directors, a MacGillavry fellow of a previous round and an official secretary (also see Composition of selection committee). Candidates will also take part in a supplementary programme compiled by the institute director.
Based on the presentations and selection interviews, the top 6 will be offered a fellowship.
