Visiting Fellowships

At IfL, we are proud to welcome many international visiting researchers who benefit from our unique research resources and inspiring and thriving scholarly community. Our visitors enrich the intellectual landscape at IfL, and as a result of these collaborations, IfL has forged links with partner institutions all over Europe.

Eligibility

Each year, IfL offers a number of fellowships to both junior researchers who have obtained a Ph.D. or its equivalent and senior researchers. Eligible candidates for fellowship stipends work on individual research projects related to IfL’s research projects and research areas: production of space, geovisualisation and history of geography. We particularly welcome applications that indicate ideas for future collaborative research or joint publications.

Value

During their fellowship tenure, fellows will spend a minimum of one month and a maximum of three months in residence at IfL. The institute provides fellowship stipends from 1.440 € per month, depending on the visitor’s qualifications. In some cases, travel grants up to 500 € are available.

Application

Applications to the visiting fellowship programme are welcome any time. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact researchers at IfL working in related fields before submitting an application. Candidates are required to submit the following materials in one pdf document (max. 4 mb) to info(at)ifl-leipzig.de:

  • motivation letter (1 page)
  • CV (1–2 pages)
  • project outline (max. 5 pages)
  • Information on income during the potential fellowship period

Application Review and Selection

Applications are evaluated by a committee on a quarterly basis with deadlines by 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December. Please take into account that our internal assessment procedure usually takes 4-6 weeks after the end of the application period. During this time period, we ask you to refrain from any questions. We will send you the results by e-mail.
