DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL HISTORY (ABTEILUNG UNIVERSALGESCHICHTE)
Research fellowships 2005
The Institute of European History, Department of General History, awards ten
fellowships for a six- to twelve-month research stay at the Institute in
Mainz. The application is open to all young historians in Germany and
abroad, who apply with a research project of their own in the field of
German and European history since the 16th century. As a rule, the fellows
work on their dissertation, but they can also work on a post-doc research
project. The Institute's library with over 200 000 books and more than 550
periodicals as well as computers for data communication are available to the
fellows for their researches.
Applications for the next selection date should be sent in by October 10,
2003. Fellowships will be granted for 2005 and later (some remaining
financial means will be available from October 2004). The selection is made
by the department's fellowship commission, which meets three times a year,
in March, July and November. During the time of the fellowship, fellows are
not allowed to receive financial supporting from another side. Foreign
applicants should have enough command of the German language to be able to
take an active part in the scientific dialogues with the Institute's other
fellows and permanent staff.
Applications should include: 1. a curriculum vitae, in which the applicant's
date and place of birth, nationality, marital status, school and university
degrees, knowledge of the German language, professional and teaching
experience are mentioned (please ask for our registration form); 2. copies
of his/her university transcripts; 3. a brief description of the proposed
research topic with a working plan and schedule for the intended sojourn at
the Institute; 4. the names and addresses of at least two scholars qualified
to judge the merits of the research proposal, to be contacted by the
Institute; 5. a list of publications.
The size of the fellowships is set in accordance with the guidelines
established by the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD - German
Academic Exchange Service) for graduate students studying for a doctorate.
The monthly grant amounts to Euro 795 after completion of a course of study
and Euro 975 after two years of scientific activity. A health insurance
subsidy is also granted; a contribution to traveling expenses and a family
subsidy can be granted. The Institute's building, the Domus Universitatis in
the city centre, has a residential section with individual rooms, which
serve both as work areas and living quarters for the fellows. The rent
includes all additional costs and amounts at present to Euro 146 monthly.
