Fellowship information   Fellowship Application Summary

The DFG Center for Advanced Studies in Tübingen aims to help establish the theoretical foundations for a new cross-disciplinary field of bio-cultural coevolution by pushing the limits of cooperation between traditional disciplines. It seeks to bring together scholars from the fields of linguistics, paleoanthropology, genetics and genomics, and archaeology to exchange ideas and develop common methodological approaches to the study of the human past. The fellowship program allows visiting scholars to pursue a multi-disciplinary academic endeavor in a stimulating environment at the University of Tübingen.

Scholars can apply for a fellowship for the years 2016 to 2018, with a stay in Tübingen between 3-6 months. Fellows can take advantage of the many resources at the University of Tübingen. Notably, the university holds a large collection of cultural and biological remains in its museum, including more than 8,000 individuals represented in the human osteology collection and over 4,000 artifacts and records in the ethnography collection.
