Deadline: 31 October 2021


Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient (ZMO) in Berlin, Germany, is inviting applications for Visiting Research Fellowships of one or two months for the calendar year of 2022. The centre seeks to attract outstanding postdoctoral scholars who are engaged in projects relevant to one of the following four Research Units: “Age and Generation”, “Environment and Justice”, “Representa-tions of the Past” and “Contested Religion”. More details on the programme can be found here:

ZMO expects all fellows to participate in the centre’s academic life and to give one presenta-tion on their project. Applicants are asked to state with which of the above-mentioned Re-search Units they would like to be affiliated during their stay and when they would like to come (please indicate two alternative periods, if possible). Please note that ZMO’s academic break is from mid-July to mid-September. Fellows should preferably come before or after this period.

The call is open to senior researchers and recent postdocs in the humanities and the social sci-ences and normally remunerated with 2000 euros/month, in addition to a travel allowance based on the original receipts (economy class). Additional child support might be provided if the researcher is accompanied by their children.

We particularly encourage applications by candidates from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Scholars currently based in Germany are not eligible to apply.

Decisions are expected by December 2021.

Applications should be sent by email to only, and include, within a single pdf file:

  • A brief cover letter (1 page) indicating your preferred research affiliation at ZMO
  • Description of a research project to be worked upon during the visit (max. 3 pages)
  • CV with a complete list of publications
  • PhD certificate (or proof of submission)
