Deadline: January 31, 2019

Research Visits at the Zukunftskolleg support temporary research stays from one up to six months by international early career researchers from partner institutions and from within the networks 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.
