Fritz Thyssen Stiftung – Fritz Thyssen Foundation, DE and other funders

The Fritz Thyssen Stiftung along with other institutions invite applications for their transatlantic postdoctoral fellowship for international relations and security. This enables candidates who have recently received their doctorate in social and political sciences or economics, and whose work focuses on international relations, peace or security issues, to spend three eight-month stays at participating research institutions or think tanks.

At least one stay must be on the Eastern side of the Atlantic and one on the Western side. Each candidate must have successfully defended their PhD by 1 October of this year and must either be a citizen of the US, Canada or Europe or must have resided in the US, Canada or Europe for at least two and a half years in the five years before the application deadline.

Up to seven fellowships will be awarded. Funding provides a monthly stipend worth €1,800, a monthly health insurance allowance worth €200 and a one-time travel allowance worth €3,500 for travel to and from the host institutions.

Closing date: July 10th 2015
