Institute of Czech Literature of the CAS
The Institute of Czech Literature (ICL) of the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) welcomes Ph.D. students and postdoctoral or senior researchers in Czech or Central European literature and culture to apply for two opportunities: the Josef Dobrovský Fellowship (a 2-, 4- or 6-week programme for early career researchers up to 35 years of age) and the Zdeněk Pešat Fellowship (a 2- or 4-week programme for researchers of any age).
The Josef Dobrovský Fellowship is intended for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers (usually up to 35 years of age; older applicants may apply for the programme below) who are interested in Czech studies in a linguistic or geographic sense. This Czech Academy of Sciences grant enables the short-term stays of scholars for 15–45 days at one of the CAS institutes.
The Zdeněk Pešat Fellowship is a funding programme of the ICL for foreign researchers who are interested in Czech literature. The visiting fellowship is intended for two- or four-week stays. At least one of the three visiting fellowships awarded annually by the ICL is intended to enhance cooperation with partners in the International Consortium for the Creation and Use of Czech Literary Bibliography.
