We are very pleased to announce that thanks to the generous support our institution receives from the Ernst Abbe Foundation, we are now able to once again offer scholarships to docs and postdocs for the year 2020. This is our 17th anniversary of offering scholarships to those who are working with the collections of the Gotha Research Library. 

Research Scholarships for PhD Students are awarded for periods of up to nine months (€ 1,300 per month) and Postdoctoral Scholarships for up to six months (€ 1,800 per month). Moreover, applications of the following format are explicitly welcome: exploration stipends for PhD candidates working on their dissertation as well as 'text and object' scholarships for PhD candidates and postdocs specializing on the relation between text and object. We also explicitly encourage applications for projects related to one of the Centre’s main research topics (profile-scholarships). We recommend to contact the institution which is holding the relevant collection in advance.

In cooperation with the Ernst Abbe Foundation and the Melton Foundation Jena the Global Solvers CO LAB: 13-5-3 UN-limited for international junior staff will take place in Gotha from 6 to 12 June 2020. Applicants with an (historical) interest in UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 13 (Climate Action), SDG 5 (Gender Equality), SDG 3 (Good Health & Wellbeing), and who are planning to be present in June are particularly welcome. The previous CO LAB you can find here. There will be a separate call for applications for the workshop itself.

Senior scholars are invited to apply for a Hiob-Ludolf-Fellowship (a monthly grant of up to € 1,500 for one or two months to help cover travel and living expenses). For further information on how to apply please note the PDF 'Hiob-Ludolf-Fellowship' in the lower right corner. 

In the case of visiting scholars who have children we offer a family allowance of € 100 per month, please provide a copy of the birth certificate. The Research Centre encourages applications by female scholars.
