The Berliner Antike-Kolleg
welcomes applications for
Visiting Research Fellowships in Ancient Studies
to be held for a period of up to six months during the academic year 2023/24.
The Berliner Antike-Kolleg is an alliance between the partner institutions Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz and Max-Planck-Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte. It promotes collaboration in research, graduate teaching, public engagement and the development of digital applications in all areas of Ancient Studies. For further information see www.berliner-antike-kolleg.org
The fellowships are open to scholars at any career level after the PhD. Fellows are expected to be resident in Berlin for the duration of the fellowship and to carry out an innovative research project in tandem with (a) Berlin-based colleague(s) who will be hosting the fellow at one of the partner institutions and who should be named in the application. This project may also be a pilot study in preparation of a larger research project to be developed in collaboration with the Berlin based partner. While any topic in any area of Ancient Studies is welcome, applicants are encouraged to submit a research proposal related to the Berliner Antike-Kolleg’s annual theme for 2023/24, “Conflicts and how to deal with them”. Fellows are further expected to take part in activities of the Berliner Antike-Kolleg as appropriate, such as relevant seminars of the Berlin Graduate School for Ancient Studies, the lecture series “Current Issues in Ancient Studies”, or other public lectures and outreach events.
Fellows will receive a monthly stipend of 2500 Euros. In addition, travel costs, research expenses, and the organization of workshops can be covered.
