4 Mentorships and 8 Independent Research Grants awarded

Congratulations to the winners of the Mentorship and the Independent Research Grant Programme! In its meeting on 13 June, the Executive Committee decided on the final applications within the two calls for support measures (application deadline was on 23 May, early applications were considered preferentially in the EC meeting on 2 May).

The Mentorship Programme enables postdoctoral researchers at the University of Konstanz to invite renowned scholars in their field to Konstanz for a few days as mentors, and to consolidate the cooperation by in turn visiting their mentor.
The Mentorship winners are: Tina Bögel (Dept. of Linguistics), who invites Prof. Dr. Alice Turk (Dept. of Linguistics and English Language, University of Edinburgh, UK), Anselm Crombach (Dept. of Psychology), who invites Dr. Patrick McGrath (Centre for Research on Family Health, Dalhousie University, Canada), Andrea Lailach-Hennrich (Dept. Of Philosophy), who invites Prof. Dominic Gregory (University of Cheffield, UK), and Andreas Trotzke (Dept. of Linguistics), who invites Prof. Dr. Anastasia Giannakidou (University of Chicago, USA).
We congratulate the Mentorship winners and welcome them as new Associated Fellows of the Zukunftskolleg.

The Independent Research Grant aims to promote independent research by researchers at the University of Konstanz who are in the early stages of their postdoctoral work. In particular, applications are encouraged for support in establishing promising contacts to researchers from other universities and in carrying out preliminary projects intended to lead to an independent application for third-party funding.
The winners are: Ariane Bertogg (Dept. of History and Sociology), Caroline Bonnes (Dept. of Economics), Tim Kuhlmann (Dept. of Psychology), Javier Lazaro Tapia (Dept. of Biology), Liang Li (Dept. of Biology), Melanie Nagel (Dept. of Politics and Public Administration), Melisa Olave (Dept. of Biology), and Mialy Razanajatovo (Dept. of Biology).
