Institute for Advanced Study for Early Career Researchers

The Zukunftskolleg is an Institute for Advanced Study (IAS). It offers 2-year and 5-year fellowships as well as a diverse support network to promote the independence of non-tenured researchers (postdoctoral researchers, junior professors, research group leaders etc.). Researchers at the postdoctoral level perform research without administrative constraints and have the freedom to engage in meaningful exchange with other up-and-coming colleagues and with distinguished senior researchers. Scholars in the humanities, social and natural sciences from across the world join the Zukunftskolleg to perform cutting-edge research.
The Zukunftskolleg is a keystone in the University of Konstanz's institutional strategy to promote top-level research.
