The Leibniz-Institute for the German Language (IDS Mannheim) and Heidelberg University offer two fellowships for researchers in the areas of Interactional Linguistics, Conversation Analysis and Multimodal Interaction Analysis. Each fellowship includes a three months stay at one or both of the two institutions.

Fellowships cover the travel expenses for an outward journey from the fellow’s home to Mannheim or Heidelberg and the return journey, three months of accommodation at the university guesthouse, a private workspace at one of the institutions, and access to the digital services of the host institution. It does not include a salary or an honorarium.

We invite applications from researchers at all career stages (pre-doc, post-doc, senior). The fellowships are available to researchers who are not currently based in Germany. During their research stay, applicants are expected to work on a scientific project of their own related to the areas stated above. The project does not have to be designed specifically for the research stay. Applicants are expected to engage in scholarly exchange with researchers from the IDS and/or Heidelberg University who are working in the fellow’s fields of study, to participate in data sessions, and to give at least one lecture on their own research during their stay.

Research stays in Mannheim/Heidelberg will be possible in the timeframe between May 2024 and May 2025 upon individual appointment with the hosts.

Applications include (as pdf-files):

  • a CV including list of publications
  • a project proposal (max. two pages)
  • a motivation letter explaining why a research stay at the IDS Mannheim/Heidelberg University is expected to benefit the fellow’s scientific/professional advancement.

The deadline for applications is April 26, 2024.
