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 2017/18
(Fellowships start: September 1, 2017)
- Junior fellowships (completed PhD plus one to six years post-doctoral experience)
- Senior fellowships (completed PhD plus a minimum of six years post-doctoral experience or a tenured professorship or equivalent permanent position)
The FCFP is intended for current or future leaders in their fields. About 25 FCFP fellowships are awarded through a highly competitive, strictly merit-based selection process. Applications are invited from academics of all nationalities and all disciplines. Note, however, that during the 3-year period prior to the application deadline, applicants may not have resided or have carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in Germany for more than a total of 12 months.
Fellowships of 3 to 10 months in the Senior scheme and of 12 months in the Junior scheme may be applied for. They will allow researchers to conduct their own research projects. Fellowships are 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 are also 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, ca. 54.000 € p. a. pre-tax; Senior: W3-equivalent professorial salary, ca. 80.000 € p. a. pre-tax, additional regulations apply for applicants with unlimited work contracts at their home institution), mobility allowance and a research cost contribution (theoretical sciences: up to 450 € per month, experimental sciences: up to 1.050 € per month). 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 and life 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. FRIAS makes every effort to provide tailor-made solutions with regard to suitable accommodation, child care and educational facilities.
The FCFP call for applications is co-financed by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Program (FP7) “Marie Skłodowska-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 for External Senior Fellowships or Junior Fellowships and submitted by September 15, 2016.
