Call for Applications: Fellowships 2023/24

We invite applications for Fellowships for the academic year 2023/24 (autumn 2023 - spring 2024) for periods of residence from three to twelve months.

The Imre Kertész Kolleg invites applications for fellowships for the academic year 2023/2024 (autumn 2023 - spring 2024) for periods of residence from three to twelve months. The Kolleg awards fellowships to scholars in the history of Central and Eastern Europe or neighbouring disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, political sciences, philosophy, literary studies or linguistics relevant to the region.
Applications are invited from the following fields:

  • the history of the long transformation in Central and Eastern Europe.
  • the history of the Holocaust and its aftermath.
  • Ukraine, history of the region.

Fellows are expected to conduct a larger scholarly project corresponding to the aforementioned fields. 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)
