The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards fellowships to international postdocs in European history, the history of religion, historical theology, or other historical disciplines.
The IEG funds research projects on European history from the early modern period until 1989/90. We are particularly interested in projects
• with a comparative or cross-border approach,
• on European history in its relation to the wider world, or
• on topics of intellectual and religious history.
This fellowship is intended to help you develop your own research project in close collaboration with scholars working at the IEG. Your contribution consists of bringing your own interests to bear on the work of the IEG and its research programme »Negotiating difference in Europe«. This includes the possibility of developing a perspective for further cooperation with the IEG. If for this purpose a promising application for third-party funding is submitted, an extension of the fellowship is possible.
WHAT WE OFFER
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. Additionally, you can apply for family or child allowance.
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.
