Application Deadline:

Within the CRC’s Integrated Graduate School (MGK), we offer fellowships for visiting scholars who want to pursue or are already pursuing a Ph.D. relating to the research program of the CRC, or want to explore topics relating to the CRC within their Ph.D. research. We offer fellowships for up to one year with a possible starting date in July 2022, August 2022, September 2022, October 2022. Renumeration is EUR 1,468 per month tax-free, and the fellows will need to purchase health insurance. The fellows are furthermore expected to participate in the training opportunities of the Graduate School, in particular methods schools, mentoring, and peer-to-peer networking events.
The prospective fellow must identify a research project in the CRC that they primarily will connect to and contact a PI of that project by the time of application. Applicants who are not yet registered in a Ph.D. program must have completed their M.A. by the planned start date. Applicants should name other research qualifications relevant to the planned research. The Integrated Graduate School aims to strengthen the diversity of the CRC and so members of groups traditionally underrepresented in German academic leadership positions are especially encouraged to apply. Note that previous recipients of CRC-1412 fellowships as well as postdoctoral researchers are **not** eligible for this stipend.

Applications must be submitted via e-mail and include the following items, preferably in a single PDF:

(a) a letter of intent stating the following

    – nature of your interest in the fellowship, and your research goals/research plan for the duration of the fellowship including the CRC project you will be associated with

    – the names and e-mail addresses of at least two scholars to be contacted for letters of recommendation.
    – the preferred period of the stipend:desired starting date (July 2022, August 2022, September 2022, October 2022) and length: 1 year max.
