The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald is an independent
institute for advanced studies located 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 University of
Greifswald to advance the excellence and the international research
profile of the University of Greifswald.
Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships will be awarded to outstanding senior
scientists who are qualified by their achievements in research and teaching.
The Fellowship program of the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg gives
senior and younger scientists the opportunity to focus on a major research
project, free from teaching and administrative obligations of normal
university life. Alfried Krupp Fellows are expected to collaborate with
colleagues from the 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), a short abstract
and a proposal of the proposed project (5 pages max.). We would like to
strongly encourage also applications from life scientists.
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 – September 30).
An office and an apartment in the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg
will be offered to each fellow free of charge. In addition, fellows will be
awarded a monthly fellowship that takes into account the high expectations
concerning the fellow’s scientific achievements.
Joint proposals from two or more scientists who plan to pursue an interdisciplinary
collaborative project in Greifswald are welcome. Applicants
for a Senior Fellowship are encouraged
to consider the combination
of a sabbatical term, granted by their home institution, together with
a six-month-fellowship from the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg.
Guidelines for the Fellowship program and a reference to the data processing
can be downloaded from www.wiko-greifswald.de.
Applications for the academic year 2022/23 will be accepted until
August 31, 2021 and should be addressed to the academic director Professor
Dr. Ulla Bonas. Please use the application form.
