The Zukunftskolleg is pleased to announce our new call for five AAA* Fellowships to support early career researchers from Africa, Asia and Latin America. The AAA Fellowships will help to strengthen the cultural diversity at the Zukunftskolleg and will thereby promote and stimulate the intellectual and integrative discourse amongst our fellows. By broadening our academic horizons to AAA countries, we want to advance intercontinental dialogue in research.
The AAA Fellowships have a duration of three to six months, which gives the fellows enough time to extend their research networks into new regions, and initiate intercontinental research partnerships. The research stays at the Zukunftskolleg also enable AAA Fellows to get to know the research environment at the University of Konstanz and enrich the scientific discussions within the university, without losing ties to their home university.
The AAA Fellows will team up with Zukunftskolleg Fellows who will assist them with settling into their departments and will support them during their entire research stay. Thus, the AAA Fellows will be an integral part of the community at the Zukunftskolleg, regardless of the rather short duration. Zukunftskolleg Fellows likewise will benefit greatly from the intercultural exchange.
The candidates applying in this open and competitive call will be selected by the Zukunftskolleg Executive Committee and will have the status of Associated Fellows.
Funding will include a stipend of 1,200€/ month and a contribution to travelling to Konstanz and back. The Zukunftskolleg does not offer employment contracts for AAA Fellows.
*After the publication of this call, we learned that in the 1970s and 1980s the acronym "AAA" also referred to paramilitary organisations in Argentina, Colombia and Spain. We distance ourselves from these political movements and will change the title of the Fellowship with the next call.
