A fellowship at CAIS gives you the freedom to pursue autonomous research and collaborations according to your own priorities. Take up to six months to concentrate exclusively on your research, free from other obligations. Take advantage of our diverse international and interdisciplinary exchange opportunities.
With its fellowships, CAIS supports excellent researchers and practitioners of all career stages, whose work focuses on the social opportunities and challenges of the digital transformation. An academic degree is not required. The research agenda offers orientation for project content.
During the fellowship, CAIS will pay for your temporary replacement at your home institution. Alternatively, CAIS will award grants of up to 1,843 euros per month.
As a fellow, you will receive travel grants to participate in events where you present your CAIS project. You also have the opportunity of inviting visiting fellows with whom you wish to collaborate during your stay at CAIS. Applications to invite visiting fellows can be submitted along with your original application or during the fellowship.
During their program at CAIS, fellows work in Bochum. The centrally located apartments, which are provided rent-free, are just a few minutes away from CAIS. The modern infrastructure at the center offers a wide range of exchange opportunities and optimal working conditions.
