The Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK), Institute for Advanced Study, is offering HWK-Europe-Fellowships to foster the studies of European history, politics, culture and societies and to broaden the knowledge about Europe in the world. Fellowships are intended for scholars of social sciences who want to pursue a project on Europe and whose research will benefit from the possibility to study Europe from within. Interested parties can apply directly or be nominated by colleagues from universities and research institutions in the region, especially the Universities of Bremen and Oldenburg. Applicants should at least hold a PhD or equivalent qualification. A Fellowship is to last 3-10 months and can be split into two or more stays at the institute. The HWK allows for different financial solutions regarding reimbursement of fellows, such as direct compensation or reimbursement of the home institution.
