10 Research fellowships for international PhD-students (IEGMainz)

The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards 10 Research
fellowships for international PhD-students for a research stay in Mainz

The IEG awards research fellowships for international junior scientist

research on the historical foundations of Europe from the early modern
period to contemporary history, particularly their religious, political
and social dimensions. Projects dealing with European communication and
transfer processes as well as projects focusing on questions related to
theology, church history and intellectual history are particularly 

What we offer
Funding is currently EUR 1200/month. Research fellows live and work for
at least 6 months and up to 12 months at the Institute in Mainz and can
pursue their individual PhD-project. They are also invited to
collaborate with the academic staff of the IEG, according to their
particular fields and interests 
(http://www.ieg-mainz.de/forschungsbereiche). The Institute's 
specialist library and the wider academic infrastructure of Mainz are
available to them for their research. 

Applications are invited from doctoral candidates of any national 
background. Applicants must have a first degree in history, theology or
another historical subject. They should not have pursued their PhD-work
for more than three years when taking up the fellowship. PhD-theses
continue to be supervised and are com-pleted under the auspices of the
fellows' home universities. Fellows are obliged to register officially
in Mainz and to reside and take part in events at the Institute. They
