Call for Applications: Alumni-Program 2015/16
FRIAS Alumni Program
The FRIAS Alumni Program aims to support the initiated and established national and international research collaborations and networks of communication. Furthermore the program wants to strengthen the involvement of our current junior researchers in these projects and networks. An overview of the current research foci and the FRIAS Fellow generation 2015/2016 can be obtained from our website at www.frias.uni-freiburg.de/en/home.
The program allows funding of “coming back to FRIAS” visits for the FRIAS Alumni of two to six uninterrupted weeks. FRIAS will cover travel and accommodation costs and will provide work space here at FRIAS. Furthermore the participation of FRIAS Alumni in workshops at FRIAS can be supported through this program to aid the continuation of collaborative research projects.
The program allows funding of “coming back to FRIAS” visits for the FRIAS Alumni of two to six uninterrupted weeks. FRIAS will provide work space at the institute and, after the research stay at FRIAS, will reimburse economy travel costs and accommodation costs up to a maximum of €75/day (up to two weeks), to a maximum of €62/day (up to three weeks) or to a maximum of €50 for visits exceeding 3 weeks. Alumni are advised to make their own arrangements in finding a suitable hotel/apartment and to directly pay for the expenses. Furthermore the participation of FRIAS Alumni in workshops at FRIAS can be supported through this program to aid the continuation of collaborative research projects.
In order to apply for funding through the program we invite you to send us a very short description of the project (about half a page), together with an estimation of the travel costs.
Please also provide an outline of your envisaged presence at FRIAS, preferably with two optional time periods in the academic year 2015/2016. Please note that most FRIAS activities fall within the period from October to July.
A current CV and publication list (for those of you who have not been to Freiburg very recently) would complete the application, which should be provided in the form of one single PDF-file.
Due to limits in funding, accommodation and office space, please note that only a certain number of return visits can be supported. But please keep in mind that the program will be continued in the foreseeable future.
For this second year of the program, two dates for application are set:
- August 31, 2015: for stays between Oct 2015 and March 2016
- December 31, 2015: for stays between April and December 2016.
You can expect our response within four weeks of the application deadline.
Please send your application to: Dr. Britta Küst (firstname.lastname@example.org).
