Fellowship Information:
Senior Fellowships are designed to support excellent scholars, who are well advanced in their academic careers.Qualified scholars are eligible without regard to nationality, institutional, or departmental affiliation; although
preference is given to applicants of international repute who have published significant papers in recognized refereed journals and books that establish the author as a leading expert in his/her academic field.

Duration and funding:
Senior Fellowships will be granted for one academic semester (1 October 2020–31 January 2021 or 1 March–30 June 2021). Fellowships entail a maximum monthly stipend of € 2.325 (€ 75 per day), office space at the IFK equipped with electronic facilities including internet access as well as one-time travel costs to and from Vienna and free accommodation in a studio apartment (40 m2) or, if preferred, a rent allowance.

Research Fellowships are designed to support post-doctoral scholars early in their careers. Applicants must have a Doctorate or a Ph.D. at the time of application. Qualified scholars are eligible without regard to nationality,
institutional, or departmental affiliation; although preference is given to qualified Austrian applicants.

Duration and funding: Research Fellowships will be granted for one academic semester (1 October 2020–31 January 2021 or 1 March–30 June 2021). Fellowships entail a maximum monthly stipend of € 2.325 (€ 75 per day), office space at the IFK equipped with electronic facilities including internet access as well as one-time travel costs to and from Vienna and free accommodation in a studio apartment (40 m2) or, if preferred, a rent
allowance. The IFK will not contribute to retirement or health benefits.

General Criteria of Evaluation:
A thematic link to the IFK’s current research focus (see website: http://www.ifk.ac.at/index.php/research-focus.html) is desired but not a prerequisite for application. The IFK will also accept “independent“ projects within the realm of humanities and social sciences unrelated to the present research focus. Applications may be submitted either in German or English.
Applications will be peer-reviewed by the IFK's International Academic Advisory Board. A final decision will be taken in regard to the requirements of the yearly scholarly program.

The Board looks for four essential features in fellowship proposals:
- a well-defined and innovative research question
- a clear definition of the uniqueness of the work and/or the significance of the research to important theoretical
and methodological issues in interdisciplinary culture studies and humanities
- a discussion of the work in the context of appropriate research done by international scholars
- clear methodological provisions that guarantee an interdisciplinary research focus

The IFK discourages proposals that are either exclusively theoretical or exclusively empirical in character. It supports projects that combine empirical investigation with thoughtful theoretical work. Research proposals that present a clearly formulated problem, demonstrate familiarity with the scholarly field(s), and develop an interdisciplinary methodological framework stand the best chance of approval by the International Academic Advisory Board.
