Tsiter-Kontopoulou Short-Term Research Fellowship

Tsiter-Kontopoulou Short-Term Research Fellowship at the Department of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, University of Vienna.

The Department of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies of the University of Vienna, thanks to the generosity of the Tsiter-Kontopoulou Fund, invites applications for a Short-Term Research Fellowship to enable pre- and post-doctoral scholars to pursue research on Byzantine and early modern Greek culture, with particular emphasis on cultural and intellectual history in the widest sense, including the history of Orthodox Christianity.


The duration of the research stay is usually two weeks to one month, any two or four weeks between 1st October and 30th June.
During this time, the recipients of the fellowship are expected to give an informal lunch presentation of their current research.
The fellowship offers the reimbursement of travel expenses, accomodation, research materials, plus a daily allowance, for a maximum of 4.000 Euros total (to be reimbursed after the completion of the stay). You are expected to make your own arrangements.


This fellowship is intended to support young and early career scholars, i.e. from the final year of doctoral study to no more than eight years after the completion of the Ph.D.
