Call for Proposals: Research in Groups - New funding formats at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research at Bielefeld University

Deadline: 5 May and 8 December 2022 Research stays

The Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) at Bielefeld University is an independent research institute open to all fields of inquiry and scholars from all countries and disciplinary backgrounds. It offers opportunities - with respect to time, space, and funding - for outstanding interdisciplinary research.

ZiF is open to scholars from all disciplines post-PhD, based in Germany and abroad. They can propose a research project to be conducted with a curated group of (preferably) international colleagues. If their collaborative application is successful, ZiF will host the group on its campus, offering ideal working conditions.

There are three new group formats (Research in Groups):

  • Visiting Groups: 1 to 3 months; up to 50,000 euros to cover the costs for travel and accommodation as well as workshops and conferences; personnel expenses (buy-outs) cannot be covered
  • Resident Groups: 4 bis 6 months; up to 400,000 euros to cover the costs for travel and accommodation as well as workshops, conferences, and personnel expenses (e.g. in the form of buy-outs)
  • Long-Term Groups: several visits to ZiF over a period of up to three years; these recurring visits may add up to a total of ten months; up to 200,000 euros to cover the costs for travel and accommodation as well as workshops and conferences; personnel expenses (buy-outs) cannot be covered

Applications can be submitted in English or German; applications have to be send in one PDF file to ZiF-proposals@uni-bielefeld.de.

The detailed current call for proposals (upcoming deadlines: 5 May and 8 December 2022) can be found on the ZiF website.
