The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald is awarding up to six Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships and up to eight Alfried Krupp Junior Fellowships for the academic year 2025/ 26.

The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald is an independent academic institution in the center of the traditional university and Hanseatic city near the Baltic Sea. The Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation founded the college in 2002 together with the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the University of Greifswald in order to strengthen the excellence of the university. The Alfried Krupp Fellows Program, which is at the heart of the Kolleg's work, was established in 2007 and has since been carried out with the generous support of the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation. It enables the fellows to concentrate on a major scientific project independently of teaching commitments and administrative tasks.

Outstanding academic personalities with a proven track record in research and teaching can apply for an Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowship. The Alfried Krupp Junior Fellowships are awarded to particularly qualified young researchers with a doctorate. Fellows are appointed for one semester (October 1 to March 31 or April 1 to September 30) or for one academic year (October 1 to September 30). Living and working space is available to the fellows at the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg free of charge. The fellowships are remunerated according to the high expectations of the fellows' academic achievements. Applicants for a Senior Fellowship are encouraged to combine a research semester at their home university with a research stay at the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg. The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg supports applicants who wish to take up their fellowship in the company of a partner and/or children. 

Applications from the natural sciences are expressly encouraged. A joint application from several researchers who would like to realise interdisciplinary projects in Greifswald is possible. It is expected that the application will demonstrate how the planned project will strengthen the University of Greifswald's research priorities and make a significant contribution to the promotion of science and research in Greifswald as an academic centre.

In the academic year 2025/26, the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald will also focus on the following interdisciplinary topics:

  • Interrelationships between animal, human and environmental health
  • Cultural, social, political and economic change in the Baltic Sea region

Researchers from all disciplines working in these areas are particularly invited to apply. Applications from other research areas in all disciplines are also very welcome and will be assessed according to their quality and links with the University of Greifswald.

Applications for the academic year 2025/26  are requested from June 1 to August 31, 2024 to the Academic Director of the Kolleg, Professor Dr. Thomas Klinger, and can only be submitted electronically via the application form, which is only available during the call for applications. In order to ensure the fairness and objectivity of the application process, the procedure will be anonymized as far as possible: Applicants' personal data will be hidden or encrypted by a neutral body for the first round of assessment in order to ensure an unbiased evaluation.

Application Instructions

Application documents
Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships and Alfried Krupp Junior Fellowships are publicly advertised. Applications should be addressed to the Academic Director of the Kolleg, Professor Dr. Thomas Klinger, and can only be submitted electronically via the application form, which is only available during the call for applications. Applications should relate to one of the semesters or academic years specified in the call for applications. If, alternatively, several periods within the advertised academic year are possible for the research stay in Greifswald, these should be specified.

Joint application by several people
A joint application by several researchers who would like to realize interdisciplinary projects in Greifswald is possible. Applicant groups are requested that each member completes the application form separately, refers to the group application in the relevant field and uploads the same documents. The research project should be described in such a way that the contribution of each member of the group is clearly recognizable.

Largely anonymized application procedure
To ensure the fairness and objectivity of the application process, the procedure is anonymized as far as possible. Applicants' personal data is hidden or encrypted by a neutral body for the first round of assessments in order to ensure an unbiased evaluation. In the second review round, the Scientific Director reviews the applications received and submits an appointment proposal to the Scientific Advisory Board. Alfried Krupp Fellows are appointed on the basis of this recommendation.

Funding
The fellowships are endowed according to the high expectations of the applicants' scientific achievements. All fellows are also provided with an apartment and a workroom at the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg free of charge. Additional insurance benefits as well as travel and laboratory costs are not covered by the Kolleg. 

Co-financing
Applicants for a Senior Fellowship are asked to consider combining a research semester at their home university with a six-month fellowship for a one-year research stay at the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg. If possible, applications for the appointment of Alfried Krupp Senior Fellows should also include information on a possible contribution by the home institution to the costs of the research stay at the Kolleg.

The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg assumes that Alfried Krupp Junior Fellows will be on leave from their home institution for the duration of their research stay. If a researcher's home institution is willing to contribute to the funding of the research stay at the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg, this is welcomed. In this case, information on the type and amount of a possible contribution is requested.

Families at the Kolleg
The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg supports applicants who wish to take up their fellowship accompanied by persons with whom they live in a civil partnership and/or children. Within the scope of its possibilities, the Kolleg offers suitable accommodation. The College's fully furnished apartments are free of rent and operating costs for Fellows and their children up to the age of 14. Fellows receive individual support in their search for suitable kindergartens, schools and other childcare options. The Kolleg works together with the University of Greifswald's family service and provides information about leisure activities, events and playgrounds for children. Most of the events organized by the Kolleg are also open to those accompanying Fellows. The Kolleg is happy to put accompanying persons in contact with members of the University of Greifswald and non-university research institutions.
