Imre Kertész Kolleg Jena

01. October 2020


We invite applications for Fellowships for the academic year 2021-2022 (1 September 2021 – 31 July 2022) for periods of residence from three to eleven 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 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.

Further information on the Kolleg can be found on the Kolleg’s 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 2 pages)

Applications must be received no later than 1 October 2020 and should be sent electronically as one single PDF to the directors of the Kolleg:
Prof. Dr. Joachim v. Puttkamer
