We currently welcome applications for outgoing fellowships for the period up to the end of 2024. Fellowships are expected to last between two weeks and two months. To help us plan the allocation of outgoing fellowships, the deadline for the next round of applications is 23 October 2022.

The outgoing fellowship programme of the Leibniz ScienceCampus Europe and America is open to professors, faculty members (PD/ Akad. Rätin/Rat, etc.) and postdoctoral researchers at UR and IOS. The fellowship scheme is not open to doctoral researchers or students.

You will need to submit a CV and a short statement, explaining why you would like to visit a particular partner institution. You should demonstrate the relevance for your own research and the strategic development of the ScienceCampus, including its central research themes. If there are particular colleagues or centres you would like to collaborate with or particularly relevant archival or library collections, or opportunities to conduct fieldwork, at the location you wish to visit, please mention this in your statement.

Selected fellows will be expected to represent the Leibniz ScienceCampus together with UR or IOS while at the partner institution, contributing to the strengthening of Regensburg’s international research network. If requested by the partner institution, you should contribute actively to the activities there. Upon your return, you should also make a contribution to the ScienceCampus’ blog-journal Frictions.

The Leibniz ScienceCampus can contribute to travel costs, accommodation and fees related to the fellowship. It may not always be able to cover all costs incurred as part of the fellowship. A daily allowance (Tagessatz) will not be awarded. The fellowships are treated as work-related trips (Dienstreisen) and should be approved, if relevant, by your superior.

The applications will be reviewed by the Board and Management of the ScienceCampus. There are a limited number of places available at each institution, thus alternative destinations might be suggested.

Fields marked with an asterisk (*) must be completed.

Please give a rough estimate (April 2023, winter 2022, summer semester 2023, etc.). The latest possible date is currently September 2024. Please note, you must be employed at UR or IOS at the time of travel.
Please enter a period between four and eight weeks. If longer/shorter, please outline the reasons (shorter for family reasons; longer stay requested with additional funding from another institution, etc.)
If you have an extensive publication record, please include only the most relevant and/or most recent works. PDF or .docx only.
1-2 pages, PDF or .docx only. Please outline why you would like to visit the selected institution. Please mention why the visiting fellowship would be relevant to your research and to developing the objectives of the ScienceCampus. If there are particular colleagues or centres, as well as archives or libraries, based at the location you wish to visit, please mention this.
Please mention any other information relevant to your application, such as requirements relating to healthcare, support or disabled access. Any details will be treated confidentially.

All data will be completely deleted after the event. The attendance list will be archived in accordance with the law for six years. You may withdraw your agreement at any time by contacting
