The Gielen-Leyendecker Fellowship focuses on female post-docs in the Humanities who received their doctorates within the last two years and want to complete an independent research project at the University of Bonn.

The Gielen-Leyendecker Fellowship supports female post-docs in the Humanities with excellent academic qualifications. Applications will be accepted from national and international applicants.

Eligible to apply for this fellowship are female post-docs who have received their doctorate within 2 years from the time of the application deadline. If more than two years have passed since receipt of the doctorate due to family obligations, this may be taken into account.

The Fellowship supports stays  at one of the following institutes of the Faculty of Arts:

  • Institute for Classical and Romance Philology
  • Institute of Oriental and Asian Studies
  • Institute for Linguistics, Media Studies and Sound Studies
  • Institute for Art History

At the time of application you need the agreement of a mentor at the envisaged host institute at the University of Bonn who will support and advise you in your academic work. The mentor must be firmly anchored within the relevant discipline.
