Relevant candidates will have conducted independent research, gained a position within their discipline and be no older than 38 years old in the year of application. Equally importantly, the candidates must be interested in and have the possibility to invest time and energy into building the academy. Members are chosen after an application process involving a scientific review process followed by interviews. While open to members of any nationality, the working language of the academy is Norwegian.

Next call for applications will be issued in 2018.
