Call for Applications: Doctoral Fellowships at the Herzog August Bibliothek

The private foundations Dr. Günther Findel-Stiftung/Rolf und Ursula Schneider-Stiftung run fellowship programmes for doctoral candidates in Wolfenbüttel. These programmes are open to applicants from Germany and abroad and from all disciplines. They fund young scholars who are working on projects linked to the Herzog August Bibliothek’s holdings.

The Herzog August Bibliothek functions as one of Europe’s most important research libraries. Its unique rare book and manuscript holdings and special collections, such as print, painting, and historical map collections, are famous all around the world. Applicants may apply for a fellowship of between 2 and 10 months. The library is also calling for applications for a fellowship of two months in the field of the history of music. This fellowship programme was initiated by the musicologist Dr Gudrun Busch who worked intensively with the library’s holdings for many years. The programme is open to doctoral candidates working in the field of musicology whose dissertation topic necessitates the use of the Wolfenbüttel holdings. The fellowships are € 1.100 per month. Fellowship holders are housed in library accommodation for the duration of the fellowship and pay the rent from their fellowship. There is also an allowance of € 100 per month to cover costs of copying, reproductions etc. Candidates can apply for a travel allowance if no funds are available to them from other sources. Please request an application form.

Beginning of Fellowship: April 1st 2018 at the earliest.

Application deadline: October 1st 2017.
