Fellows' affiliations 2015–19 (MCAS I)
The Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies (MCAS) considers the fellowship programme to be its central component. It offers a flexible curriculum that allows internationally established scholars, as well as aspiring junior researchers, to participate for extended or shorter periods of time. The individual research projects presented by the fellows contribute to the comprehensive textual and historical framework of the Maimonides Centre.
MCAS Senior Fellowships provide a framework for established scholars with an international reputation to pursue their research at MCAS for a duration of three–five months.
Senior fellowships are intended for researchers in Jewish studies, history, philosophy, Islamic studies, religious studies, or related fields in the humanities who have held a PhD for at least four years at the time of application (Category I) and for those who have achieved a professorship or an equivalent academic position (Category II). Fellowships start either on October 1 or on April 1.
Funding is subject to the terms and conditions of MCAS regulations, following suggestions made by Universität Hamburg. For further information please contact MCAS.
