Country: Germany;

Deadline: 30.04.2015



The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg will award 3 to 5 Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships and 5 to 8 Alfried Krupp Junior Fellowships for the academic year 2016/17.
The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald is an independent institute for advanced study situated in the center of the historic city of Greifswald on the shore of the Baltic Sea. The Kolleg was established by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung in cooperation with the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-University Greifswald in order to advance the excellence and the international research profile of the university.

The “Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships” will be awarded to outstanding senior scientists and scholars who are qualified by their achievements in research as well as in teaching.

The “Alfried Krupp Junior Fellowships” will be awarded to highly promising younger post-doctoral scholars.

Through the Fellowship programme of the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg, senior and younger scholars are given the opportunity to concentrate on a major piece of research, free from the full teaching and administrative obligations of ordinary university life. Alfried Krupp Fellows are expected to co-operate with colleagues from the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-University Greifswald. Applicants should attach a research proposal and up to five publications relevant to their project.

Fellows will be invited either for one semester (October  1 –  March 31 or April 1 –  September 30) or for a full academic year (October 1 –  September 30). Offices and accommodation in the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg will be offered to the fellows free of charge. The fellowships are funded according to the high expectations concerning the scientific achievements of the fellows.

Proposals from groups of scholars who plan to pursue an international and interdisciplinary collaborative project in Greifswald are welcome, too. Applicants for a senior fellowship are encouraged to take into account the combination of a sabbatical term granted by their home institution with a fellowship of six months, resulting in a full academic year at the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg.

Proposals and applications should be submitted from 1th of January 2015 until 30th April 2015 to the academic director, Professor Dr. Bärbel Friedrich, Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald, D-17487 Greifswald.
