About the Program
The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) Awards Research fellowships for international PhD students for a research stay in Mainz from January 2016 or later.
The IEG awards fellowships for international junior researchers in history, theology and other historical subjects. The IEG promotes research on the historical foundations of Europe from the early modern period to the 20th century, particularly regarding their religious, political and social dimensions. Projects dealing with European communication and transfer processes as well as projects focusing on questions related to theology, church history and intellectual history are particularly welcome.
What we offer
Funding is currently € 1200/month. Research fellows live and work for at least 6 months and up to 12 months at the Institute in Mainz and can pursue their individual PhD project. They are also invited to collaborate with the academic staff of the IEG, according to their particular fields of interest (http://www.ieg-mainz.de/forschungsbereiche). The IEG special library and the wider academic infrastructure of Mainz are available for their research.
The primary academic advisor emails an up-to-date reference directly to the IEG by the application deadline (fellowship(at)ieg-mainz.de).
The reference should discuss (please avoid a general letter of recommendation):
- the applicant’s academic qualifications
- subject matter, goal and current state of the PhD project
- a synopsis of work to be done in Mainz along with possible time and work schedules
