Every year, the BGHS invites doctoral researchers from other countries to work at the Graduate School for four months to promote international scientific and cultural exchange. Visiting fellows have the opportunity to use their stay at the BGHS to work intensively on their dissertation, visit degree programme courses and build contacts to our scientific community. Fellows receive a computer work station for the duration of their stipend. The grant consists of a EUR 1,200 stipend per month. This amount will be supplemented by a child allowance if applicable. Upon application, travel costs can also be covered by the Graduate School.

All international doctoral researchers may apply who are matriculated in a doctoral programme abroad and whose dissertation has a historical, sociological, social-anthropological or political science focus. German nationals may also apply if their tertiary education has been at foreign universities. The visiting fellowships further networking with scientists at the BGHS, therefore no prolonged archival or research trips should take place within this period.

The candidates present their project to the BGHS community at the beginning of their stay and submit a final report by the end of their funding period. To ensure that your project fits with the BGHS profile, you should take a close look at the areas of research covered by the graduate school. Your project should be relatable to those areas. You can find an overview of the areas of research and the professors working at the BGHS here.

The deadline for applications is 15 January 2017. For more details and to apply please visit the University of Bielefeld
