Junior Fellowship Program

The Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Research Network 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 2020, the fellowship programme will be on pause. For the fall semester 2020, the IFN has again announced kick-off fellowships for promising postdoctoral researchers from the humanities (application deadline: February 28, 2020). 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 Postdoc.Mobility, SNF-Ambizione, SNF-Eccellenza, PRIMA, Marie Curie Actions). You find the call for proposals here.

Das IFN congratulates former Junior Fellows Dr Jennifer Rabe and Dr Pascale Schild on being granted an Early Postdoc.Mobility of the Swiss National Science Foundation!
