The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards fellowships for international postdocs in European history, the history of religion, historical theology, or other historical disciplines. Application deadline: October 15, 2019.
The IEG funds research projects on European history from the early modern period until 1989/90. The IEG is particularly interested in projects
• with a comparative or cross-border approach,
• on European history in its relation to the wider world, or
• on topics of intellectual and religious history.
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. If for this purpose a promising application for third-party funding is submitted, an extension of the fellowship is possible.
During the fellowship you are required to reside at the Institute in Mainz. You actively participate in
the IEG’s research community and the weekly colloquia. The Institute expects you to present your work at least once during your fellowship. Applicants must have completed their doctorate no more than
three years before taking up the fellowship. The IEG expects proficiency in English and a sufficient
command of German to participate in discussions at the Institute.
