Hebrew University Junior Fellowships

The European Forum at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the IWM jointly award six-month Junior Visiting Fellowships to PhD candidates in the humanities or social sciences.


The Junior Visiting Fellow of the academic year 2016/17 will be invited to spend a six-month term between October 2016 and September 2017 at the IWM in Vienna to pursue a research project while working in residence at the Institute as a member of the international, multidisciplinary scholarly community. The fellows will receive a stipend in the amount of € 11,000 to cover accommodation, living expenses, travel, health insurance and incidentals during the stay at the Institute. Furthermore, the IWM will provide an office, access to the Internet, in-house research facilities and other relevant sources in Vienna. In addition, the IWM will offer lunch five days a week.
If the fellow chosen is not a student of the European Forums’s teaching programs, his department should co-sponsor 25% of the stipend (€ 2,750).
