The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards a 6–12 month fellowship for international postdocs in the field of Digital Humanities.
During the fellowship, you will develop your own research project using methods of the Digital Humanities. The project should contribute to the institute’s research programme on »Negotiating differences in Europe«. You will collaborate closely with colleagues from the IEG in the upcoming Digital Humanities Lab. Working out a promising application for thirdparty funding that is embedded in the Digital Humanities Lab, may extend the fellowship if the necessary funding is available.
The IEG Fellowship provides a unique opportunity to pursue your individual research project while living and working for 6–12 months at the Institute in Mainz. The monthly stipend is € 1,800.
During the fellowship you are required to reside at the Institute in Mainz. You actively participate in the IEG’s research community and the weekly colloquia. We expect you to present your work at least once during your fellowship. Applicants must have completed their doctorate no more than three years before taking up the fellowship. We expect proficiency in English and a sufficient command of German to participate in discussions at the Institute.
Please combine all of your application materials except for the application form into a single PDF and send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Letters of recommendation should be submitted directly by the referees. You may write in either English or German; we recommend that you use the language in which you are most proficient.
