Alfried Krupp Fellowships at Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald

The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald aims to appoint 3 to 6 “Alfried Krupp Senior Fellows” and 4 to 8 “Alfried Krupp Junior Fellows” during the academic year 2019/20.

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 of Greifswald in order to advance the excellence and the international research profile of the university.

  • The “Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships” will be awarded to out-standing 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 program of the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg, senior and younger scholars are given the opportunity to concentrate on a major piece of research, free from teaching and administrative obligations of ordinary university life. Alfried Krupp Fellows are expected to co-operate with colleagues from the Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald. Applications should be submitted as a single PDF file and include a curriculum vitae, a publication list (with publications relevant to the project highlighted) and a research proposal (5 pages at most).

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 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.

Applications for the academic year 2019/20 will be accepted until August 31, 2018. Please use the application form.
