Junior Fellowship Program

The Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Research Network (IPN) at the WBKolleg offers promising scholars an academic “home base” for the transitional period after acquiring a doctoral degree (Junior Fellows). The aim is to prepare an application for funding to secure the next career step or to make possible the writing of another thesis for further academic qualification.

In the spring term 2022, the fellowship program will be on pause. For the autumn semester 2022, the IPN has again announced kick-off fellowships for promising postdoctoral researchers from the humanities (application deadline: February 27, 2022). The call is primarily aimed at those who are seeking a longer-term connection to the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Bern via appropriate funding sources (such as SNF Postdoc.Mobility, SNF Ambizione, SNF Starting or Advanced Grants, SNF PRIMA, SNF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowships).

The IFN congratulates Junior Fellow Dr Andreas Berger Gehringer (cohort HS21) on being granted a Postdoc.Mobility of the Swiss National Science Foundation!
