The OeAW awards up to eight fellowships per year to holders of a doctorate or PhD in the humanities and social and cultural sciences in order to assist in the transition to the post-doc phase.
In particular, the aim is to support:
- the completion of publications resulting from a doctoral thesis
- the development of a candidate’s own research project for applying to national or international funding bodies
- the development of (international) networks and cooperation
Applications are invited from outstanding young scholars who have completed their doctoral/PhD studies in the field of the humanities and cultural and social sciences in Austria no more than six months before the submission deadline.
