Senior Fellowship Programme

The Senior Fellowship Programme mainly addresses established researchers, and has the primary aim of offering scholars a paid leave from their home institutions within a stimulating environment. These fellowships normally run for a length of six months (although both longer and shorter stays can be considered). The fellowship scheme provides an opportunity for scientific exchange among scholars in a supportive academic environment and offers a possibility to work on or complete publication projects. Fellows are invited to present their work in progress within the Centre and at the university generally.

The Centre takes over payment of the Fellow's salary to their home institution for the duration of the Fellowship. Fellows also receive a personal monthly grant to cover additional costs incurred during the Fellowship, a travel allowance, and an allowance for family members accompanying the Fellows to Frankfurt.

Senior Fellowships are generally by invitation, though the Centre also issues calls for applications for scholars who work in fields of research connected to specific projects carried out at the Centre. These calls will be published on the Centre's homepage.

The Fellows and the Centre enjoy the inviting research facilities of the Goethe University's Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, Bad Homburg (Forschungskolleg Humannwissenschaften). Located in a scenic park, the Institute offers first-rate office spaces, library services and accommodation, which Fellows can rent, as well as a stimulating and interdisciplinary research environment for scholarship in all fields of the social sciences and the humanities.
