10 Junior/Senior Fellowships on understanding complex systems


Fellowships offered by Käte Hamburger Kolleg Cultures of Research (RWTH Aachen University) International center for advanced studies in history, philosophy, and sociology of science and technology.

A core topic is the conceptual understanding and computational approaches to complex systems, in particular from the perspectives of the material, bio, neuro and information sciences, engineering, mathematics, and logic. The main research areas for these fellowships are: (1) Complexity, Lifelikeness, & Emergence; and (2) Emerging Computational and Engineering Practices.

Fellows will join the international center for a maximum period of 12 months. The fellowships provide a full grant commensurate with applicants' level of professional experience, working space in fully-equipped offices, logistical support, and access to the interdisciplinary research landscape and research labs at RWTH Aachen University. Fellows who take unpaid leave during their fellowship will receive financial compensation in the form of a stipend; alternatively, the center would pay for a teaching replacement at the fellow's home institution. In order to create a stimulating intellectual environment among the resident research community, fellows are expected to routinely conduct much of their work from Aachen during their fellowship. Residency in Aachen is required and the center can support fellows in the search for accommodation.
