Applications are open for the Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships 2020. The IEG awards postdoctoral fellowships to young academics from Germany and abroad who have completed their doctoral dissertations and are pursuing a new research project.
This fellowship is intended to help you develop your own research project in close collaboration with scholars working at the IEG. Your contribution consists in bringing your own interests to bear on the work of the IEG and its research programme negotiating difference in Europe. This includes the possibility of developing a perspective for further cooperation with the IEG.
The IEG Fellowships are jointly funded by the federal and state governments. The fellowships are exclusively for the purpose of pursuing the research project detailed in the application at the IEG. Fellows are therefore not permitted to pursue or avail of any other form of employment or funding for the duration of the fellowship.
- IEG Fellowships for postdocs have a monthly value of € 1,800
- Fellowship holders whose partners accompany them to Mainz and do not have income of more than 450 euros per month may receive a family allowance. Please indicate in your application whether your partner accompanies you to Mainz.
- Fellows who come to Mainz accompanied by their underage children can apply for a child allowance.
