Job ID


The College for Life Sciences, a junior program of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin (Institute for Advanced Study), offers young life-sciences scholars from around the world an opportunity to take a break from the lab and gain time to work and develop their own projects and immerse themselves in an intellectually and culturally diverse environment.
Each year the Wissenschaftskolleg welcomes internationally recognized senior as well as promising junior scholars in all fields of knowledge, including the humanities, the social sciences and the arts and we invite you to become part of this “learning community”.
Our goal is to promote a kind of science that transcends disciplinary boundaries and goes beyond established issues and approaches.
We offer: Three to six months’ residency at the Wissenschaftskolleg in Berlin during the academic year 2018-19 (September 2018 - June 2019); a full stipend based on your previous salary; studio accommodation on campus; freedom to pursue a project of your choice; insight into new areas of knowledge and research cultures; integration into a unique international community of Fellows; access to Berlin’s excellent scholarly and scientific community; access to the Wissenschaftskolleg’s outstanding library and IT services. We do not offer any lab space.
Through the College for Life Sciences we promote scientists at the beginning of their career, i.e. postdocs, junior group leaders, lecturers, assistant, associate and junior professors.
You must have obtained your doctorate by the start of your fellowship, and we also require that you have at least one lead-author publication in a peer-reviewed journal. There are no restrictions regarding your discipline of origin in the life sciences, nationality, or age etc. Applications from scientists working at institutions in Berlin cannot be taken into consideration.
Please apply by January 7, 2018 with a project outline, a motivation letter and a list of your publications.
