The fellows of the Zukunftskolleg stand in solidarity with their fellow researchers in Ukraine. Therefore, the Zukunftskolleg has launched a new call for applications for Visiting Fellowships open to early career researchers in Ukraine threatened by the current war (“scholars at risk”).
The 16th Fellowship call has closed. In its meetings on 27/28 January, 2022 and 17/18 February 2022, the Recruitment Committee selected three new 2-year Postdoctoral Fellows and decided on four candidates to be offered a 5-year Research Fellowship.
We congratulate Mohsen Jenadeleh (Associated Fellow / Computer and Information Science) who has received a 3-year grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG) for his project „JND-based perceptual video quality analysis and modelling“.
For the second time, the Zukunftskolleg has launched the Zukunftskolleg Herz Fellowship Call, which is similar to the ZUKOnnect Fellowship but relies on active recruitment rather than open application.
We congratulate Tina Bögel (former Associated Fellow / Linguistics) who has received a 3-year grant from The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the German Research Foundation (DFG) for her collaborative project with Alice Turk on the „Prosodic Structure at the Interface between Language and Speech“.
