Slide background

Niels O. Schiller

Professor of Psycho- and Neurolinguistics

Fast track career

When he was awarded a Vici subsidy by NWO in 2003, Schiller's career really took off. He became Professor of psycholinguistics in Maastricht, and was invited to become a member of the prestigious KNAW Young Academy.  He was very happy in Maastricht and  didn't respond with immediate enthusiasm when Lisa Cheng, Professor of theoretical linguistics and co-founder of the Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition, sounded him about about whether he would be interested in coming to Leiden.
