CCKF-ERCCT Short-Term Resident Fellow Programme 2018/19

The European Research Center on Contemporary Taiwan – A CCK Foundation Overseas Center (CCKF-ERCCT) at the University of Tübingen, Germany, pursues the objective of promoting and facilitating postgraduate social science research on contemporary Taiwan and scholarly cooper-ation between Europe and Taiwan.

To this end, we run a Short Term Resident Fellow Programme and invite two Ph.D. students or postdoc researchers from Europe and Taiwan each year to join the center in Tübingen for a pe-riod between three months and one year.

Invited fellows will be granted a monthly allowance of EUR 350, basic health insurance, and a one time travel grant of EUR 500. We provide office space and the opportunity to discuss pro-jects and exchange ideas with ERCCT Fellows and Visiting Scholars working at the ERCCT. We encourage Short-Term Resident Fellows to present their ongoing research in a Taiwan Collo-quium, and invite them to take part in the center’s manifold academic activities. Working lan-guages at the ERCCT are English and Mandarin, German language skills are hence not required.

Interested applicants should submit an academic CV, an exposé of their Ph.D. or postdoc re-search project of no longer than 10 pages, and a letter of recommendation by a professor of the institution where they are enrolled/affiliated. Please also state the intended duration of your stay. All application materials should be sent in electronic form to Stefan Braig at

The application deadline for the winter semester 2018/2019 (15 Oct. 2018 to 9 Feb. 2019) or the next two semesters respectively is 31 August 2018.
