A key characteristic of the IOS is its international orientation. The Institute offers different fellowships for visiting scholars:
Program for Visiting Scholars at the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies in Regensburg
Within the framework of its Visiting Research Fellow Program, the IOS encourages applications from historians, economists and political scientists as well as scholars of cognate disciplines. The duration of the research stay usually lasts between two and four weeks. The fellows are expected to conduct research relevant to the research profile of the institute. The allowance is determined by the length stay and the applicant’s professional experience.
Augustin Hirschvogel Fellowship at the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies in Regensburg
In the frame of the Augustin Hirschvogel Fellowship, the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) encourages applications from historians, geographers, cartographers and scholars of cognate disciplines, who focus on Eastern or Southeastern Europe. The duration of the research stay is up to four weeks. As part of a mutual agreement with the institute, the fellow is expected to contribute to the development of GeoPortOst by testing and exploiting it. GeoPortOst is the IOS gateway for historical maps, printed in books and published for the first time digitally in GIS format. The allowance is determined by the length of stay and the applicant’s professional experience.
The Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS Regensburg) and the City of Regensburg have established a joint research fellow program for scientists working in the City of Odessa. We encourage applications from social scientists, political scientists, economists and historians as well as scholars of cognate disciplines from universities and institutions of higher education and research in Odessa. The fellowship aims at strengthening the partnership between the Cities of Regensburg and Odessa, as well as between the IOS and academic institutions in Odessa.
