Become an Oberwolfach Leibniz Fellow

Young researchers, having received their doctoral degree not more than 5 years ago, can apply for an Oberwolfach Leibniz Fellowship with a stay from two to six months at Oberwolfach in order to realize a research project either individually or in small groups. Fellows are eligible to invite coworkers for shorter periods to Oberwolfach.

The MFO offers postdoctoral financing and some travel money, board and lodging are free.

Applications should include the application form, a description of the research project, a curriculum vitae, a publication list, copies of the four most significant papers, a recommendation letter of a mentor and two letters of recommendation (to be sent directly to the MFO by the respondents).

Applications should be sent to with attachments in ps or pdf format. Decision making works similar as for the RiP programme. An application as an Oberwolfach Leibniz Fellow can also be arranged through an application within the European Post-Doctoral Institute.
