The Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK) in Delmenhorst, Germany, is an Institute for Advanced Study in the Northwest of Germany. Its Fellowship program offers outstanding scholars the opportunity to focus on research without the distraction of everyday routines in academia, to interact with colleagues from other disciplines, and to benefit from the wide range of academic traditions represented at the institute. The HWK awards Fellowships to highly qualified scholars of all career levels, from postdoctoral researchers to senior scientists.

Excellent researchers with a PhD from all disciplines and from all parts of the world (except northwestern Germany) are welcome to apply. We also accept applications involving experimental and lab research; in these cases confirmation of access to research infrastructure at a near-by institution is required.
Fellowship duration ranges from 3 to 10 months. Residence at HWK is obligatory. Financial conditions are to be negotiated on an individual basis. 
Written applications are required. General information about the application, the review procedure, and financial conditions is available for download from "How-to-become-a-fellow". Please download and read carefully!
