Fellowships at RWTH Aachen University, Germany

The Käte Hamburger Kolleg: Cultures of Research - part of RWTH Aachen University in Germany, is offering ten research fellowships for international scholars from the humanities, social sciences or Science, Technology & Society (STS) as well as from natural, life and technical sciences. The fellowships can start between June and October 2024. The deadline for applications is December 31, 2023.

The Käte Hamburger Kolleg: Cultures of Research (c:o/re) is an International Center for Advanced Studies at RWTH Aachen University funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Part of its mission is to offer a free space to its fellows to develop their research projects in a vibrant academic environment facilitating exchange of ideas for a timespan of up to 12 months.


Fellows will join The Käte Hamburger Kolleg: Cultures of Research (c:o/re) for up to 12 months. The fellowships provide a full grant, commensurate with applicants’ level of professional experience, working space in fully-equipped offices, logistical 2 support, and access to the interdisciplinary research environment and research labs at RWTH Aachen University. Fellows who take unpaid leave during their fellowship will receive financial compensation in the form of a stipend; alternatively, financing for a teaching replacement at the fellow’s home institution can be arranged for. In order to create a stimulating intellectual environment among the resident research community, the fellowships are in residence and fellows are expected to be regularly present at c:o/re during their fellowship. Thus, taking residency in Aachen or the surrounding area is required and c:o/re can support fellows in finding suitable accommodation.


The deadline for applications is December 31, 2023. Scholars can apply for either junior or senior fellowships. For junior fellows a successfully completed PhD is an eligibility requirement; for senior fellowships a professorship (associate or full professorship) or comparable position (e.g., senior lecturer) is expected. Applications (in English) should include a cover/motivational letter (1 page), CV (tabular, max. 2 pages), a project outline incl. intended goals/outcome of the project (max. 1300 words), and a list of publications. Please also submit a writing sample (journal article or book-chapter). Applications must be submitted via our online application platform that you find here.
