The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald is an independent
institute for advanced study situated in the center of
the historic city of Greifswald on the shore of the Baltic Sea. The
Kolleg was established by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und
Halbach-Stiftung in cooperation with the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald
in order to advance the excellence and the international research
profile of the university.
The "Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships" will be awarded to outstanding
senior scientists and scholars who are qualified by their
achievements in research as well as in teaching.
Through the Fellowship program of the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg,
senior and younger scholars are given the opportunity
to concentrate on a major piece of research, free from teaching
and administrative obligations of ordinary university life. Alfried
Krupp Fellows are expected to co-operate with colleagues from
the Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald. Applications
should be submitted as a single PDF file and include a curriculum
vitae, a publication list (with publications relevant to the project
highlighted) and a research proposal (5 pages at most).
Fellows will be invited either for one semester (October 1 – March 31
or April 1 – September 30) or for a full academic year (October 1 –
Offices and accomodation in the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg
will be offered to the fellows free of charge. The fellowships are
funded according to the high expectations concerning the scientific
achievements of the fellows.
Proposals from groups of scholars who plan to pursue an international
and interdisciplinary collaborative project in Greifswald
are welcome, too. Applicants for a senior fellowship are encouraged
to take into account the combination of a sabbatical
term granted by their home institution with a fellowship of six
months, resulting in a full academic year at the Alfried Krupp
Wissenschaftskolleg. The guidelines for the Fellowship program
