New call from the College for Senior Fellowships 2025

The College for Social Sciences and Humanities calls for applications for its Senior Fellowship Programme. Excellent international researchers in the social sciences and humanities and tandem partners from the University Alliance Ruhr can apply until 10 June 2024 for research fellowships commencing in March or September 2025.

The Senior Fellowship Programme addresses experienced scholars in the social sciences and humanities who are active members of a foreign university or research institution and feature an internationally recognised, outstanding research profile. They have the opportunity to work on independent research projects over the course of six months, integrated in the interdisciplinary academic environment of the College. The programme is designed to stimulate collaboration through the tandem principle: thus, the planned cooperation with partners from the University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr) is an essential application prerequisite.

The College‘s Scientific Board selects up to ten Senior Fellows for research stays at the College in Essen, commencing in March and September 2025 respectively. Apart from outstanding academic achievements of the applicants, the selection criteria include particularly the quality and collaborative character of the research projects and their potential for innovation for the UA Ruhr. In accordance with the open-topic approach of the College, the Fellowship Programme is characterised by thematic openness and interdisciplinarity.
