The Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK) in Delmenhorst, Germany, is an Institute for Advanced Study in the Northwest of Germany. Its Fellowship program offers outstanding scholars the opportunity to focus on research without the distraction of everyday routines in academia, to interact with colleagues from other disciplines, and to benefit from the wide range of academic traditions represented at the institute. The HWK awards Fellowships to highly qualified scholars of all career levels, from postdoctoral researchers to senior scientists.

The HWK is pleased to announce its annual call for applications for Senior and Junior Fellowships in the research areas BRAIN, EARTH, ENERGY and SOCIETY. Excellent researchers with a PhD from all disciplines and from all parts of the world (except northwestern Germany) are welcome to apply. We also accept applications involving experimental and lab research; in these cases confirmation of access to research infrastructure at a near-by institution is required.

Fellowship duration ranges from 3 to 10 months. Residence at HWK is obligatory. Financial conditions are to be negotiated on an individual basis.

Detailed information on Fellowship terms and on the application procedure is available at: http://www.h-w-k.de/en/fellows/how-to-become-a-fellow.html

Written applications are required. Please download, read and follow our guide “How to apply and financial conditions” carefully. If you have further questions please contact the Head of Program responsible for your research area.

The deadline is July 16, 2018, 24:00 (CEST – Central European Summer Time); late applications will not be considered.
