The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) in Mainz awards one fellowship for a period of six to eight months for international doctoral students (m/f/div.) in the field of Digital Humanities.
The fellowship supports international doctoral students who wish to carry out their own research project using Digital Humanities methods. Your research should be connected to aspects of the institute’s research programme, on »Negotiating differences in Europe«. As a member of the institute’s Digital Historical Research Unit you will collaborate closely with researchers of our DH Lab.

Scholars from the humanities with a historical focus who use digital methods for their projects are also invited to apply for the fellowship.
