Vacature: Fellowships “Digital Humanities”

The three institutions of the MWW Research Association are calling for applications for several fellowships in the field of Digital Humanities, ideally lasting six months (at least three, a maximum of twelve). The programme is open to all disciplines and is directed towards young scholars (graduates at Master level) from Germany and abroad. Applicants must be working on a project linked to the interests and collections of at least one of the three institutions and make use of methods and techniques from the Digital Humanities (e.g. Markup Methods for Electronic Editions, Stylometry, Topic Modelling, Visualisation).

For further information regarding the inventory in question, it is advisable to reach out to those in charge of the collections prior to one´s application.

Fellows will receive a monthly stipend (€ 1,200 for graduates, € 1,800 for postgraduates); an additional travel allowance will be granted. The particular institution will support the fellow’s project with its own expertise and in finding suitable accommodation (guest houses may be available). Fellows are expected to contribute to the academic life of the particular institution and to participate in scholarly exchanges. The fellows are required to reside in Marbach, Wolfenbüttel or Weimar respectively. Unless otherwise stated, the general terms and conditions of the individual institutions apply.

Application deadline: January 15 or July 15 (for a fellowship beginning at the earliest on April 15 or October 15)

Application documents:

  • application form
