Imre Kertész Kolleg Jena Fellowships: History of Central and Eastern Europe

The Imre Kertész Kolleg invites applications for Fellowships for the academic year 2018-2019 for periods of residence from three months up to a full academic year. Applications are invited from noted and established scholars in the history of Central and Eastern Europe or neighboring disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, political sciences, philosophy, literary studies or linguistics relevant to the region.

Fellows are expected to conduct a larger scholarly project corresponding to the research profile of the Kolleg. As the Fellowships are writing fellowships either for conceptualizing or finalizing work, fellows are expected to work at the Imre Kertész Kolleg and to reside in Jena for the duration of their fellowship.

Stipends range from € 3.000 to € 5.300 per month according to the academic position at the home institution. The Kolleg will provide work space, support by student research assistants, and will help finding appropriate accommodation in Jena.


  • Applicants must hold the PhD (applicants for Junior Fellowships must have submitted their doctoral thesis).
  • Applicants should propose a research project within the thematic range of the Imre Kertész Kolleg (focus on the twentieth century and on Central, Eastern or Southeastern Europe, or on Russia and Ukraine in a larger European context).
  • Applications from neighbouring disciplines are encouraged.
