Leibniz Institute of European History Mainz: Fellowships for Doctoral Students
- with a comparative or cross-border approach,
- on European history in its relation to the wider world, or
- on topics of intellectual and religious history.
The IEG Fellowships provide a unique opportunity to pursue your individual PhD project while living and working for 6–12 months at the Institute in Mainz. During the fellowship you are required to reside at the Institute in Mainz. You actively participate in the IEG's research community, the weekly colloquia and scholarly activities. We expect you to present your work at least once during your fellowship. The IEG preferably supports the writing up of dissertations; it will not provide funding for preliminary research, language courses or the revision of book manuscripts. The IEG encourages applications from women.
