Leibniz Summer Fellowships “German and European History in the 20th century”

for the academic year 2018 to study German and European History in the 20th century. These two-month fellowships provide an opportunity to pursue individual research in Germany while participating in the academic life of one of Germany’s major historical research centres. Founded in 1992, the ZZF covers a broad scope of Contemporary European History with currently four research departments “Communism and Society”, “Economic Thought and Practice”, “Regimes of the Social Sphere” and “Contemporary History in the Age of Media and Information”. The ZZF library holds approx. 80,000 items and subscribes to more than 100 periodicals. Since 2009, the ZZF has been a member of the Leibniz-Association.

Applicants must have at least postdoctoral status with an outstanding academic record. They are expected to pursue their own research. However applicants whose interests relate to the research departments of the ZZF will be preferred. Fellowship holders will be assigned to a research department and asked to present their current project in a seminar or colloquium.

The Leibniz Summer Fellowships carry a monthly grant of about 3,000 €. The funding is supposed to cover all expenses including travel, housing, and insurance. Fellows are expected to reside in Berlin or Potsdam for two consecutive months between April and October 2018. The ZZF will provide office space and other relevant facilities.
