The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, offers guest residencies of up to two months each. The objectives of the fellowship program are to support high-quality journalism in the area of the history of science, promote the public dissemination of topics in the history of science, and strengthen the dialogue that the history of science enables among the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. At the same time, the program offers scholars at the Institute the opportunity to find ways of enhancing the public communication of their research.
As a fellowship recipient, you will shadow a research project in one of the Institute’s departments and carry out your own research. You will be able to attend the colloquiua and workshops of the various departments. During your residency, you will be mentored by an MPIWG researcher and the Head of Communications. We expect you to offer an internal colloquium event on a theme related to journalism and science.
