Young scholars wishing to conduct research in a field different from their original field of studies are encouraged to apply for the Einstein fellowship that will commence in 2022. Fellows will benefit from a EUR 10,000 allowance and travel expenses covered. The deadline is on 15 May 2021.
The Albert Einstein Fellowship supports creative, interdisciplinary thought by giving young scholars the chance to pursue research outside their previous area of work. The Einstein Forum is a foundation of the German federal state of Brandenburg that serves the public as an open laboratory of the mind. Through a varied program of conferences, workshops, podium discussions, and lectures it brings together original thinkers from all over the world to test new ideas.
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. 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. At the end of the fellowship period, the fellow will be expected to present his or her project in a public lecture.
The deadline is on 15 May 2021.
Candidates must be under 35 and hold a university degree in the humanities, in the social sciences, or in the natural sciences. Applications should include a CV, a two-page project proposal, and two letters of recommendation.
