Research fellowship programme

Each year, IfL offers a number of fellowships to both junior researchers who have obtained a Ph.D. or its equivalent and senior researchers. Eligible candidates for fellowship stipends work on individual research projects related to IfL’s research projects and research areas. We particularly welcome applications that indicate ideas for future collaborative research or joint publications.

First step

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact researchers at IfL working in related fields before submitting an application.

Type and Extent of Funding

During their fellowship tenure, fellows will spend a minimum of one month and a maximum of three months in residence at IfL. The institute provides fellowship stipends from 1.440 € per month, depending on the visitor’s qualifications. In some cases, travel grants up to 500 € are available.
