"The Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung
announces two to four scholarships for non-German postgraduates or non-German scholars with a PhD to conduct research at the
Historisches Institut, Abt. Alte Geschichte, University of Cologne
Scholarships are for periods ranging between 6 and 24 months. Recipients of the scholarships will receive amounts that correspond with those granted by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (currently about 1.475 € per month for a postgraduate, 2.000 € per month for a scholar with a PhD.).
The scholarships are open for projects from all disciplines of classical studies that pertain to the general topic of "centre and periphery", but projects concerning Greek or Latin epigraphy from the Imperial period and late antiquity are especially encouraged.
Since Greek and Latin epigraphy has long been an area of special importance in ancient studies at the University of Cologne, the institute is well equipped to accommodate the sorts of research project that the grants are designed to support.
During the tenure of the scholarships, individuals are required to live and conduct their research in Cologne and are expected to participate, e. g., in courses offered in the degree program "Papyrologie, Ephigraphik, Numismatik" as well as in summer-schools and study excursions that may be organized.
Earliest start of the scholarship is 1 April 2017. It is also possible to apply for a project that will begin at a later date. Comparable announcements will be made in the following years.
Applicants should submit the usual documents (curriculum vitae, publications, description of the project, etc.) and an indication regarding the desired starting date of the scholarship and length of the stay in Cologne.
Applications should reach Prof. Dr. W. Ameling, Universität zu Köln, Historisches Institut – Alte Geschichte, Albertus Magnus Platz, D-50923 Köln, Germany (firstname.lastname@example.org), not later than 1 December 2016."
