Researchers at Faculty 04 have access to numerous funding opportunities.
- Research funding at Faculty 04
Faculty 04 offers the possibility to support individual and collaborative research projects of habilitated members of the faculty by means of the Förderfonds Forschung des Fachbereichs Geschichts- und Kulturwissenschaften in the form of small start-up grants of max. 3,000 euros. The aim is to support projects until they are ready for an application for national and international funding. Informal applications can be submitted each year in the summer semester with start of funding on the 1st of October.
Furthermore, the faculty supports young researchers by offering post doc positions funded for one year. The aim of the one-year full-time employment is to enable the excellent post doc talents to build up a suitable third-party funding base at the beginning of their post doc phase. For this purpose, a project is prepared for application and submitted for national or international funding in the course of the year.
The faculty currently offers young researchers who are employed with a research focus or who are unable to gain experience in teaching as part of their employment, support in the form of paid teaching assignments. Each semester, two teaching assignments are announced as part of the programme funded by the idea competition of the Office for Equal Opportunities. Interested employees may submit an informal application.
- Funding within the JLU
Within the JLU, larger joint projects can be funded by start-up funding from the Research Fund of the Justus Liebig University Giessen. Applications for funding from this fund can be submitted any time.
The start-up funding for joint research initiatives of scientists at Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen and Philipps-Universität Marburg comes from Flexi-Funds (Research campus Middle Hesse).
- National Sponsors and Foundations
Apart from project funding by the Federal Government (for example, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research [BMBF]) and the state [e.g. within the framework of LOEWE or other programmes of the Hesse Ministry of Science and Culture [HMWK]), the programmes of the German Research Foundation [DFG] are primarily used to support research projects. The German Academic Exchange Service [DAAD] also funds bilateral projects for scientific cooperation. There is also a large number of foundations that fund research projects. Important sponsors of cultural and humanities research are, among others (german versions below):
Allianz Cultural Foundation
