University of Konstanz, Germany

Deadline: February 15, 2020

Research Visits at the Zukunftskolleg support temporary research stays up to three months by international early career researchers from partner research institutions and from within the network of University-based Institutes for Advanced Study (UBIAS).

The aim of the Research Visits is to provide an opportunity to engage in a research project at the University of Konstanz, ideally in collaboration with a Zukunftskolleg fellow.

No limitation is placed on the area of research within the humanities, natural and social sciences. Interdepartmental and interdisciplinary study is encouraged.

Visiting researchers receive a working space in the Zukunftskolleg with all the usual research facilities and are expected to participate in all the Zukunftskolleg’s activities. Experimental projects in the natural sciences can only be supported if arrangements for lab space are made with the respective departments, since the Zukunftskolleg does not have any laboratory space of its own.

Funding will include round trip travel to Konstanz and up to EUR 800 per month toward accommodation in Konstanz. The Zukunftskolleg will not offer employment contracts for Research Visits.

Deadline: February 28, 2020

The Zukunftskolleg is an Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Konstanz for the promotion of outstanding early career researchers in the natural sciences, humanities and social sciences. It forms a platform for interdisciplinary discourse between researchers in Germany and abroad, and provides them with resources for obtaining extramural funding. Researchers at the Zukunftskolleg perform research without administrative constraints and have the freedom to engage in meaningful exchange with other up-and-coming colleagues and with distinguished senior researchers.

Up to 5 (post-)doctoral stipends are available for up to 3 months (with justification for up to 4 months) and are based at the Zukunftskolleg. The start date is between September 1st, 2020 and October 1st, 2020. Deadline for applications is 28 February 2020. The Zukunftskolleg Konnect Fellowships support early career researchers from Africa, Asia and Latin America related to one of the thirteen departments of the University of Konstanz. As ZUKOnnect Fellow, you can use this time to extend your research networks and to get to know the research environment at the University of Konstanz, without losing your ties to your home university. As these fellowships can build a first bridge to the German and European academic system, we also encourage doctoral students in their last year to apply. The Zukunftskolleg will not offer employment contracts for ZUKOnnect Fellows.
