Each year, the Käte Hamburger Kolleg Aachen: Cultures of Research (c:o/re) invites ten junior and senior researchers of the humanities, social sciences and STS as well as from natural, life and technical sciences to Aachen. Part of its mission is to offer a free space to its fellows to develop their own research and to exchange ideas. c:o/re is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Fellows will join c:o/re for a maximum period of 12 months. The fellowships provide a full grant commensurate with applicants’ level of professional experience, working space in fully-equipped offices, logistical support, and access to the interdisciplinary research landscape and research labs at RWTH Aachen University. Residency in Aachen is required and c:o/re can support fellows in the search for accommodation.
Scholars can apply for either junior or senior fellowships. For junior fellows a successfully completed PhD is an eligibility requirement; for senior fellowships a professorship (associate or full professorship) or comparable position is expected.
