The Zukunftskolleg is an Institute for Advanced Study (IAS). It offers fellowships as well as a diverse support network to promote the independence of early career researchers. There are up to four (post-)doctoral stipends available for up to three months of on-campus research at the Zukunftskolleg (with justification for up to 4 months).
In addition to the on-site ZUKOnnect Fellowships 2023, a 12-month digital affiliation is included. The digital affiliation will begin in the summer of 2023. The on-site ZUKOnnect Fellowships’ ideal start date falls between 15 September and 15 October 2023.
The Zukunftskolleg Fellows will work with the ZUKOnnect Fellows to support them throughout their whole research stay and to help them settle into their departments.
