ZiF, Center for Interdisciplinary Research, Bielefeld University, Germany
Deadline: 1 October 2017
Invitation to submit draft proposals for the Research Group 2019/20 to the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) of Bielefeld University.
The ZiF offers the opportunity to establish an interdisciplinary Research Group in the academic year 2019/20. For several months up to one year fellows reside at the ZiF and work together on a broader research theme. ZiF provides funding, support by a research assistant, and a professional infrastructure (i.e. accommodation, conference facilities).
The research group may be applied for in two different formats:
(1) Research group with a duration of 10 months and a budget of 500.000 €
(2) Research group with a duration of 5 months and a budget of 250.000 €
Applications for organising a ZiF Research Group may be submitted by any scholar from Germany or abroad. In the initial phase, a draft proposal for a Research Group (up to 5 pages) is required. In a second phase, invitations to submit full proposals will be issued. Draft proposals should be received by the Managing Director of the ZiF, Professor Dr Michael Röckner, by 1 October 2017 at the latest.
The ZiF is an internationally operating Institute for Advanced Study which has been housing and supporting interdisciplinary research projects from the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences since 1968. The proximity of the university campus creates excellent working conditions and facilitates contacts among scientists and scholars beyond their collaboration at the ZiF.
