IFK_Senior Fellowships are intended for outstanding researchers who are advanced in their academic careers, and want to pursue their own research at the IFK while fostering intellectual cooperation with the IFK_Fellows and other Austrian colleagues. Qualified applications for this fellowship will be accepted from individuals of all nationalities and regardless of institutional or professional affiliation. Applicants with an international reputation and a publication profile that identifies them as leading experts in their respective scientific fields are particularly encouraged to apply.


IFK_Senior Fellowships include an expense allowance of max. € 2,325 monthly (€ 75/per day) as well as a workstation at the IFK with an iMac and internet access.
