Longer Term Researchers

Small groups of researchers who want to come for a more extended period to Oberwolfach to carry out joint research in the stimulating atmosphere of the MFO can apply as Oberwolfach Research Fellow (OWRF). For fresh post-docs, it is additionally possible to apply for a Leibniz Fellowship in order to become an Oberwolfach Leibniz Fellow (OWLF).

Projects from all areas of mathematics can be supported by these programs, in particular, interdisciplinary research and cooperation is encouraged. The MFO will provide office space and accommodation (full board and lodging) in our newly renovated double-room appartments. The programs offer undisturbed working conditions with an excellent infrastructure embedded in an international environment.

In view of our EDI policy the MFO wishes to increase in particular the number of female participants. Female mathematicians are strongly encouraged to apply. Concerning possible support of young families, please check our corresponding website.
