The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards 8–10 fellowships for doctoral students in European history, the history of religion and other historical disciplines.
The IEG funds PhD projects in European history from early modern to contemporary history. We are particularly interested in projects
- with a comparative or cross-border approach
- on European history in its relation to the wider world
- on topics of intellectual and religious history
- that make use of digital tools and methods.
What we offer
IEG Fellowships provide a unique opportunity to pursue and finalise individual PhD projects while living and working at the Institute in Mainz for 6–12 months. The monthly stipend is € 1,350. Additionally, it is possible to apply for family or child allowance.
Successful candidates are required to reside at the Institute in Mainz throughout the duration of their fellowship. They are expected to be active members on the IEG’s research community and to participate in the weekly colloquia and scholarly activities. Moreover, they will present their work in progress at least once during their stay. The IEG supports the writing up of dissertations and does not provide funding for preliminary research, language courses or the revision of book manuscripts. At the time of the application deadline, candidates should have pursued their PhD for a maximum of three years. PhD theses continue to be supervised under the auspices of the fellows' home universities. We expect proficiency in English. The IEG encourages applications from women.
Please combine all application materials, except for the application form, into a single PDF and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications may be submitted in either English or German; we recommend that candidates use the language in which they are most proficient.
