CCKF-ERCCT Short-Term Resident Fellow Programme 2018

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 cooperation 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 period 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 projects 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 Colloquium, and invite them to take part in the center’s manifold academic activities.  Working languages 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 research 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 summer semester 2018 (16 Apr. to 28 Jul. 2018) or the next two semesters respectively is 15 December 2017.
