IEG Fellowship - Digital Humanities

Application deadline: April 18, 2022
For a fellowship beginning in September 2022 or later

The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) in Mainz awards one fellowship for a period of six to eight months for international doctoral students in the field of Digital Humanities.


The fellowship supports international doctoral students who wish to carry out their own research project using Digital Humanities methods. The focus should be on a research question that contributes to the institute’s research programme, preferably on the current topic of »Negotiating differences in Europe« as well as the collaborative digital projects (e.g. DigiKAR or Shared Churches). At IEG, you will have the chance to closely collaborate with the researchers in the Digital Historical Research Unit | DH Lab.

Scholars from the humanities with a historical focus who use digital methods for their projects are invited to apply for the fellowship.

Offer and Requirements

The monthly stipend is € 1,350. Additionally, you can apply for family or child allowance. As a fellowship holder you are required to reside in Mainz.

You will actively participate in the IEG's research community and the weekly colloquia, where we expect you to present your work at least once during your fellowship. Fellows must submit a final report of their project at the end of the funding period.

Proficiency in English and German is required in order to participate in discussions at the Institute.
