Since its foundation the Franz Rosenzweig Minerva Center invites each year doctoral and post-doctoral fellows from all over the world to pursue their research at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
The Rosenzweig Fellowship aims to create a lively network of young scholars which constitutes the core of the Center's activity. Fellows are invited to conduct their research at the Center, where they also enjoy a rich program of workshops, conferences and other activities and are given an opportunity to present their work-in-progress during the Center's colloquium or the annual retreat.
Besides a travel grant and a monthly stipend, the Center offers fellows a working space, access to University resources and proximity to Jerusalem libraries and archives, as well as an opportunity to share their research with young and senior scholars from their field. Initiatives and cooperation among the fellows are encouraged and supported by the Center, and fellows may also take part in its various research projects.
Young scholars dealing with all aspects of German-Jewish and Central-European Jewish culture – including history, literature, philosophy, folklore, sociology, political science, visual arts, material culture – are warmly encouraged to submit their application. A Call for Applications is published in the winter of each year.
