Daimler and Benz Foundation/Einstein Forum Fellowship 2018 (Fully Funded)

Daimler and Benz Foundation/Einstein Forum Fellowship 2018 (Fully Funded)

Deadline: April 15, 2017

The Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation are offering a fellowship for outstanding young thinkers who wish to pursue a project in a different field from that of their previous research. The purpose of the fellowship is to support those who, in addition to producing superb work in their area of specialization, are also open to other, interdisciplinary approaches – following the example set by Albert Einstein.

At the end of the fellowship period, the fellow will be expected to present his or her project in a public lecture at the Einstein Forum and at the Daimler and Benz Foundation. The Einstein Fellowship is not intended for applicants who wish to complete an academic study they have already begun.

Fellowship

  • The fellowship includes living accommodations for five to six months in the garden cottage of Einstein’s own summerhouse in Caputh, Brandenburg, only a short distance away from the universities and academic institutions of Potsdam and Berlin. The fellow will receive a stipend of EUR 10,000 and reimbursement of travel expenses.

Eligibility

  • Candidates must be under 35 and hold a university degree in the humanities, in the social sciences, or in the natural sciences.

Application Process

Applications should include a CV, a two-page project proposal, and two letters of recommendation. All documents must be received by April 15, 2017.

Applications should be submitted by mail to: Bewerbungen sind zu richten an
