The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald aims to appoint up to six Alfried Krupp Senior Fellows and up to eight Alfried Krupp Junior Fellows during the academic year 2022/23. Alfried Krupp Fellows are expected to co-operate with colleagues from the University of Greifswald.
Through the Fellowship program of the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg, senior and junior scholars are offered an opportunity to concentrate on a major piece of research, free from teaching and administrative obligations of ordinary university life.
Deadline: 31 August 2021
Two types of Fellowships are available:
- Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships are aimed at outstanding senior scientists and scholars who are qualified by their achievements in research as well as in teaching
- Alfried Krupp Junior Fellowships are aimed at highly promising early-career post-doctoral scholars
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 accomodation 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 also welcome. Applicant groups are requested to submit a joint application and to submit it to the application form by uploading only one joint application document. The application document should contain all relevant information about the applicants. The research project should be described such that the contribution of each individual member of the group is recognisable.
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.
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 University of Greifswald in order to advance the excellence and the international research profile of the university.
