The Mentorship Programme enables postdoctoral researchers at the University of Konstanz to network with distinguished colleagues both in Germany and abroad, and to maintain these contacts.
The Interdisciplinary Collaborative Projects Programme aims to promote research collaborations between young researchers. An interdisciplinary research project gives grant holders the opportunity to identify and explore new, innovative and/or risky research perspectives with neighbouring disciplines and across disciplines.
The Transdepartmental Collaborative Teaching Programme aims to promote the development of new teaching courses and expand departmental syllabi. It gives grant holders the opportunity to explore new, innovative topics in teaching and to further develop their teaching skills and teaching approach across disciplines.
The Intersectoral Cooperative Programme aims to develop cooperations between postdoctoral researchers and the non-academic sector. Grants will be given to support cooperations that foster joint research projects with industrial partners, companies, social institutions, cultural institutions, archives, public bodies, or non-profit organisations.
These calls are open for all postdoctoral researchers at the University of Konstanz.
The Research Visit Programmes (open to Zukunftskolleg Fellows only) seek to enhance international research cooperation and to support international mobility. They fund temporary research stays both at the Zukunftskolleg and abroad for international exchange among peers:
1) The Research Visit programme for Zukunftskolleg fellows encourages temporary assignments to a partner Institute for Advanced Study or any international research university (Outgoing Research Visit).
2) Zukunftskolleg fellows can nominate international early career researchers for a Research Visit at the Zukunftskolleg (Incoming Research Visit internal).
3) Early career researchers from the Zukunftskolleg´s partner institutes can apply for a Research Visit at the Zukunftkolleg (Incoming Research Visit external).
The duration of a Research Visit in either direction should range from one to six months. The grant will cover travel and accommodation costs.
