Doctoral and postdoctoral fellowship in religious, political, social and cultural history of Europe, in Germany (IEG Fellowship Programme)
Deadlines: 15 August 2019 (doctoral students); 15 October 2019 (postdocs)
The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards fellowships to young academics (doctoral and postdoctoral researchers) from Germany and abroad. Funding is provided for both doctoral and postdoctoral research dealing with the religious, political, social and cultural history of Europe from the early modern period to 1989/90. Comparative, transnational and transfer-historical research projects are particularly welcome, as are projects which deal with topics of intellectual, church or theological history.
If they wish, fellowship holders and fellows can collaborate with the academic staff of the IEG in the Institute’s research areas. Each fellowship holder is assigned a contact person from among the academic staff of the IEG who can offer them advice and mentoring.
Research projects must be at least six months in duration in order to avail of IEG funding. Fellowship holders and fellows reside and work in the Institute building in Mainz. The specialist library of the Institute and the other infrastructure that Mainz has to offer as an academic centre are available to the fellowship holders and fellows to conduct their research. The duty to reside at the Institute does not preclude short trips to archives, libraries, specialist researchers and conferences elsewhere. The working languages at the IEG are German and English and therefore proficiency in English and a sufficient command of German to participate in discussions at the Institute are expected.
For doctoral fellowships, IEG awards 8–10 fellowships for international doctoral students in European history, the history of religion, historical theology, or other historical disciplines. The IEG Fellowships provide a unique opportunity to pursue your individual PhD project while living and working for 6–12 months at the Institute in Mainz. The monthly stipend is €1,350. Additionally, you can apply for a family or child allowance.
For postdoc fellowships, IEG awards fellowships for international postdocs in European history, the history of religion, historical theology, or other historical disciplines. This fellowship is intended to help you develop your own research project in close collaboration with scholars working at the IEG. Your contribution consists in bringing your own interests to bear on the work of the IEG and its research programme »Negotiating differences in Europe«. The IEG Fellowship provides a unique opportunity to pursue your individual research project while living and working for 6–12 months at the Institute in Mainz. The monthly stipend is €1,800. Additionally, you can apply for a family or child allowance.
