SCAS (Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study) utlyser:

The Natural and Medical Sciences Programme

About the Programme 
The Natural and Medical Sciences Programme of the Swedish Collegium is a newly launched
research programme aimed at advancing cutting-edge research in the natural and medical sciences, 
as well as at bridging the gap between these and the humanities and social sciences. The programme
initially runs over five years and is funded by The Erling Persson Family Foundation and The Knut 
and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. 

The focus of the Natural and Medical Sciences Programme is on research that involves synthesis, data
analysis and conceptual and theoretical work. There are no research laboratories at the Collegium, but
in its immediate vicinity there are extensive such facilities. However, it is envisaged that scholars while
in residence will primarily use such facilities as resources for intellectual encounters and dialogues rather
than to conduct their own research. 

There are four thematic foci of the programme:

1) Theoretical Biology
2) Human Brains and Societies
3) Measurable Man
4) Exoplanets and Biological Activity on Other Worlds

Deadline: 15 October 2017 (for the academic year 2018-19 or the autumn semester 2018)
