The Hamburg Institute for Advanced Study (HIAS) Fellowships
The fellowship program is aimed at both outstanding established scholars and promising emergent early career researchers (minimum requirement: doctorate) as well as artists and cultural professionals. One of the most important prerequisites for a fellowship at HIAS are intellectual curiosity, an interest in other disciplines as well as openness to engage with topics and ways of inquiry beyond the confines of one’s own discipline. Ideal candidates are researchers as well as artists and cultural professionals who reflect the basic assumptions of their discipline and who work theoretically or conceptually. HIAS emphatically welcomes applications by early career researchers and emerging artists and cultural professionals. Since HIAS attaches great importance to diversity, applications from people who are located in usually rather underrepresented regions of the world are particularly welcome.
During their fellowship, the fellows live and work in Hamburg. Therefore, only research that can be carried out on site at HIAS or in laboratories of local cooperation partners is suitable as a project.
To ensure that the fellows enrich the Hamburg science location with their external perspective and expertise, researchers from within the metropolitan region of Hamburg are not eligible for a HIAS fellowship.
