Call for Applications:
Research-in-Residence Fellowships at the Passau International Centre for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Passau/Germany in 2022 and 2023
Each year, the Passau International Centre for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies invites applications worldwide from promising junior researchers at the postdoctoral level as well as from internationally established academics for Research-in-Residence Fellowships at the University of Passau in Lower Bavaria/Germany. The mobility programme funds full-time fellowships for short-term stays of at least two months, preferably longer. The funding period will be arranged individually.
PICAIS promotes interdisciplinary research aligned with the University's strategic guiding themes, supporting interdisciplinary project ideas that break new ground in terms of the topics examined and the methods employed. We seek candidates with a strong research background in their own discipline, who are open to engage in interdisciplinary scientific activities.
The programme’s main objectives are to create a free working space, support joint research projects, enhance early career training and promote interaction between our invited fellows and local researchers. Fellowship applications must, therefore, be endorsed by a member of the University of Passau, who will act as the host on site and submit a supporting letter as part of the proposal.
We would, thus, like to encourage applicants to contact suitable host candidates among our researchers directly and identify mutual research and/or methodological interests.
The PICAIS programme is open to
aplicants from all disciplines represented at the University of Passau, including the humanities, social sciences, business studies, economics, law, computer science and mathematics; and to
all research topics and methodologies.
Fellows are provided with office space, computer facilities and a full-time fellowship, paid as lump sum, which covers the cost of accommodation, travel costs/mobility allowance and a research costs contribution.
The deadlines for applications are March 15 and October 17, 2022 for fellowships in 2022 and 2023.
To apply, please send your application by e-mail.
