Do you have an exceptional interdisciplinary research idea?

Do you want to join forces with international colleagues from various disciplines? Are you looking for a time-out to focus on your research?

The ZiF, Bielefeld University’s Institute for Advanced Study, is operating internationally and supports interdisciplinary research projects. The proximity of the university campus creates excellent working conditions and facilitates contacts among scientists and scholars beyond their collaboration at the ZiF. It offers the opportunity to establish an interdisciplinary Research Group in the academic year 2022/23. For several months up to one year fellows live and work together at the ZiF. The ZiF provides funding, support by a research group coordinator, and a professional infrastructure (i. e. accommodation, conference facilities).

The Research Group may be applied for in two different formats:

(1) Research Group with a duration of 10 months and a budget of 500.000 €
(2) Research Group with a duration of 5 months and a budget of 250.000 €

Please submit a draft proposal with your ideas for a Research Group (up to 5 pages) by 1 October 2020 to the
