RomanIslam Resident Fellowship 2023 for Scholars in North Africa (Fully Funded to Hamburg, Germany)

Deadline: 15th of November, 2022.

The Center for Advanced Study “RomanIslam Center for Comparative Empire and Transcultural Studies” funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), invites applications for Resident fellowships (Post Doc) (starting 1.4.2023, duration between 1 and 12 months)

One of the main elements of the Romano-Islamic Center for Comparative Empire and Transcultural Studies is the fellowship program. The Center brings together academics from various fields who are interested in the Romanization and Islamication of Late Antiquity, with a particular emphasis on the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa in the first millennium CE, though not solely. The Center’s overarching goal is to investigate novel perspectives on Romanization and Islamication during this time and to reframe the scholarly discussion in the area. It offers a flexible curriculum that enables both experienced academics from around the world and aspiring junior researchers to join for longer or shorter times. The fellows’ particular research projects are part of the holistic framework.


  • Fellowships are available for scholars at all stages of their academic career who have completed their doctoral degree and established an independent research profile.
  • Applicants should be engaged in a research project in any relevant discipline that is related to the Center’s interests in Romanization and Islamication in the period and area in question.
  • The Center also welcomes applications from scholars working on comparative empire and transcultural studies in a broader historical (or contemporary) perspective whose research has a strong focus on theoretical and methodological issues.


  • Fellows are required to reside in Hamburg, where they pursue their own research project while also participating in the colloquia held at the Center.
  • For the duration of their stay fellows receive a remuneration covering accommodation, travel, and living expenses in accordance with their needs and the pertinent regulations of Hamburg University and the DFG.

Application Procedure:

  • Applications should be in English or in French, including a CV, a research proposal for the project pursued at Hamburg, including the project’s relation to the topic (2000 words), and an indication of the months the applicant wants to spend at the Center (between 1.4.2023 and 31.3.2024).
  • All materials should be sent in a single pdf document to Dr. Rocco Selvaggi romanislam@uni-hamburg.de by November 15, 2022.
  • Should you have any questions pertaining to the details of the fellowship program or the application, please contact the organizers: Sabine Panzram (sabine.panzram@unihamburg.de) and Stefan Heidemann (stefan.heidemann@uni-hamburg.de).
