FRIAS COFUND Fellowship Programme (FCFP)
The Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) is the University of Freiburg’s international research college. The institute supports innovative research projects through individual fellowships.
The Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies announces the following
Individual FCFP fellowships for the academic year 2014/15
(Fellowships start: September 1, 2014)
- Junior fellowships (completed PhD plus initial post-doctoral experience)
- Senior fellowships (completed PhD plus a minimum of six years post-doctoral experience)
Up to 18 FCFP fellowships are available to researchers regardless of their nationality and field of research. According to the EU mobility rule, applicants must have had their main residence or carried out their main activity outside Germany for more than 24 months during the 3 years prior to the application deadline.
Fellowships of 3 to 12 months in the Senior scheme and of 12 months (humanities and social sciences) or up to 24 months (natural sciences, medicine, engineering) in the Junior scheme may be applied for. They will allow researchers to conduct their own research projects. Fellowships will be awarded to individuals with challenging and innovative research projects of high academic quality. The determining selection criteria are the academic excellence of both the applicant and of the project proposal. Personal qualifications with regard to international expertise, leadership skills and interdisciplinary interest will also be taken into account during the evaluation of the applications.
Application is open to proposals from all disciplines that can be supported at the University of Freiburg.
Successful applicants will become FRIAS fellows. Each fellow will receive an internationally attractive living allowance (Junior: E 13 TV-L, Senior: W3-equivalent professorial salary, additional regulations apply for applicants with unlimited work contracts at their home institution), mobility allowance and a research cost contribution (theoretical sciences: up to 5.000 €, experimental sciences: up to 12.500 €). A mentoring program is put in place for each Junior Fellow in her/his career development.
FRIAS unites research in the humanities and social sciences, the natural sciences, engineering and medicine. It is the aim of the Institute to support academic exchange across existing boundaries: between disciplines, between different cultures and countries, between established and younger researchers.
The institute provides its fellows with modern office space and an up-to-date infrastructure. Fellows have full access to all library services from one of the leading German university libraries. Special attention is given to fellows who plan to come to Freiburg together with their families.
The FCFP call for applications is co-financed by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Program (FP7) “Marie Curie Actions – People” (co-funding of regional, national and international programs) and the State of Baden-Württemberg.
The completed FCFP application form together with the required documents has to be uploaded on the application website below for External Senior Fellowships or Junior Fellowships by January 10th, 2014.
Application Deadline: 10-Jan-2014
