To increase academic exchange and cooperation between Europe and Taiwan and to promote the study of contemporary Taiwan, the ERCCT each semester invites up to 2 Ph.D. or post-doctoral students from the ERCCT partner institutions to work at the Center as visiting fellows for one month. We offer a stipend of 900 € for accommodation and living expenses, and a free round trip air ticket. We pay insurance for the time spent in Tübingen and provide office space at the ERCCT. It is also possible to stay longer than one month and use the ERCCT facilities, though living expenses for the extended time (including the cost of accommodation) will then have to be taken care of by the visiting fellow. The partner institution will pay for a roundtrip air ticket to and from Germany or help selected applicants to obtain the necessary co-funding.
During their stay at the ERCCT, visiting fellows take part in the centre’s academic activities, most notably the regularly held Taiwan Colloquium, and present their ongoing Ph.D. or postdoc research to the other fellows. Working languages at the ERCCT are English and Mandarin Chinese.
Applicants are required to submit an academic CV, an exposé of their research project of max. 10 pages, and a letter of recommendation by a professor of their institution via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Application deadline for the winter semester 2012/2013 (runs Oct. 15th to Feb. 9th) is June 15th, 2012 and for the summer semester 2013 (April 15th to July 27th) is February 15th, 2013.
