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

The Imre Kertész Kolleg invites applications for Fellowships for the academic year 2019-2020 for periods of residence between three and twelve months.

Applications are invited from noted and established scholars in the history of Central and Eastern Europe or neighboring disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, political science, 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.

Further information on the Kolleg can be found on our website.

Applications must include:

  • curriculum vitae
  • list of publications
  • project proposal in English (not exceeding 5 pages)
  •  a statement on the relevance of the research project to the Kolleg’s research profile (not exceeding 1 page)
