Subject: Einstein Fellowships

The Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation are offering a
fellowship for outstanding young thinkers who wish to pursue a project in a
different field from that of their previous research. The purpose of the
fellowship is to support those who, in addition to producing superb work in
their area of specialization, are also open to other, interdisciplinary
approaches - following the example set by Albert Einstein.

The fellowship includes living accommodations for five to six months in the
garden cottage of Einstein`s own summerhouse in Caputh, Brandenburg, only a
short distance away from the universities and academic institutions of Potsdam
and Berlin. The fellow will receive a stipend of EUR 10,000 and reimbursement
of travel expenses.

Candidates must be under 35 and hold a university degree in the humanities, in
the social sciences, or in the natural sciences. Applications for 2018 should
include a CV, a two-page project proposal, and two letters of recommendation.
All documents must be received by April 15, 2017.

At the end of the fellowship period, the fellow will be expected to present
his or her project in a public lecture at the Einstein Forum and at the
Daimler and Benz Foundation. The Einstein Fellowship is not intended for
applicants who wish to complete an academic study they have already begun.

A successful application must demonstrate the quality, originality, and
feasibility of the proposed project, as well as the superior intellectual
development of the applicant. It is not relevant whether the applicant has
begun working toward, or currently holds, a PhD.

PLEASE NOTE THAT NO FELLOWSHIPS WILL BE GIVEN FOR DISSERTATION RESEARCH. THE
PROPOSED PROJECT MUST BE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT IN CONTENT, AND PREFERABLY
FIELD AND FORM, FROM THE APPLICANT'S PREVIOUS WORK.

Applications should be submitted by mail to:
Prof. Dr. Susan Neiman
Einstein Forum
Am Neuen Markt 7
14467 Potsdam
Germany

Or by email to: fellowship@einsteinforum.de
