Deadline Extended: History of Migration Tandem Fellowship at GHI West

The German Historical Institute Washington has extended the deadline for applications to its Binational Visiting Fellow Fellowship in the History of Migration at the GHI West. The fellowship provides German and North American postdoctoral scholars the opportunity to develop a binational research tandem which links up two academics working on research in the field of history of migration. The program is designed for postdoctoral historians with a strong interest in the history of knowledge and an outstanding academic record. In order to ensure successful collaboration, our preference is for applicants who are applying together with their potential tandem partner. Preference will also be given to candidates doing original research for a new book project.


Starting in September 2019, the successful applicants will be in residence at GHI WEST for a nine-month fellowship roughly corresponding to the Berkeley academic year. They will be expected to conduct their research and fully participate in the academic life at GHI WEST. Funding will be provided for a 9-month stay at GHI WEST/ UC Berkeley. The monthly stipend will be 3,500 Euro per month (or the equivalent in USD). The deadline for applications has been extended to February 1, 2019. For application instructions, please see the GHI Website.
