- HCTS >
Each year, the HCTS invites a group of senior and junior fellows to pursue their own research and to engage in discussions with other scholars. A number of places is reserved for scholars from Heidelberg University. External fellows must be in residence in Heidelberg during their fellowship. The period of research can range from between six months to two academic years. Usually, fellowships run from September to February or from March to August.
Fellows benefit from the finest research facilities, the stimulating environment of a multi-disciplinary and international community of first-rate scholars. All Fellows are offered the support of research assistance, library services, and an excellent Digital Humanities Unit. Fellows from Heidelberg University are offered time off from teaching in order to pursue their research projects. Visiting Fellows receive a stipend of up to 15.000 Euro/year to make up for losses in (sabbatical) salary and for additional costs incurred by their stay in Germany. Junior Fellows will receive a budget to facilitate their research, about 2500 € per semester.
Fellows are expected to take part in HCTS activities, e.g. attending Dinner seminars given by other Fellows, participating in the HCTS Lecture Series and offering at least one public lecture or presentation in a graduate class.
Researchers working on all historical periods, all regions of the world, and from all relevant disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply and to develop new, innovative ways to pursue their research from a transcultural perspective. Group applications are welcome. Fellowships are awarded to scholars who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise. Fellowships will be awarded on the strength of a candidate's proposed research project, the relationship of the project to the research initiatives, the candidate's scholarly record, and the candidate's ability to contribute to intellectual life at the HCTS.
