Hebrew University Fellowship

Fellowship Programs

In this joint fellowship program, which started in 2014, the European Forum at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna award an IWM Visiting Fellowship every second academic year.

The European Forum at the Hebrew University (www.ef.huji.ac.il)  and the Institute for Human Sciences jointly award one six-month Visiting Fellowship for a Ph.D. candidate or a faculty member at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.


The Visiting Fellow will be invited to spend a six-month term between September 2022 and June 2023 at the IWM in Vienna to pursue a research project while working in residence at the Institute as a member of its international, multidisciplinary scholarly community. Senior fellows will receive a stipend of €22,000, junior fellows 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 research resources in Vienna. In addition, the IWM will offer lunch five days a week. If the fellow chosen is not a faculty member or a student of the European Forum’s teaching programs, her or his department should co-sponsor 25% of the stipend (€5,500, resp. € 2,750).


Eligible to apply for a fellowship are PhD candidates or faculty members in any discipline within the humanities and social sciences whose research interests correspond with the IWM’s main research fields (www.iwm.at).
