Universität KonstanzExzellenzcluster: Kulturelle Grundlagen von Integration

Information for scholars of other institutions

Funding can be provided for:

  • Professors and postdocs outside the university and the institutions cooperating with the Cluster who have the relevant research profile.
  • Persons doing scientific work – for example in the cultural and journalistic fields – or are directly involved in integration issues. (On this point see also the Artist-in-Residence-Fellowship)

Ways of applying

For scholars at universities and research institutes outside the University of Konstanz there are several ways of applying for a post as a fellow or guest of the Institute for Advanced Study:

  • Proposals for external candidates (fellows or guests) can be made by members of the Cluster or by cooperation partners of the Excellence Cluster. Direct application by scholars themselves is not possible.
  • Persons who have contact with scholars at the cluster can approach them. We will gladly provide information for other interested persons.
  • Once a year the Institute for Advanced Study offers two scholarships for which qualified postdocs can apply. Currently, there are no fixed deadlines. You can find open scholarship offers here.

The academic plenary assembly of the Excellence Cluster usually decides in spring and fall on the award of scholarships for the following year. Applications can therefore be made by April 30 and September 30 respectively.

On questions concerning the application please contact the Institute’s staff.
