SWP, the German Institute for International and Security Affairs, Berlin, in cooperation with Stiftung Mercator and Istanbul Policy Center (IPC) calls for applications for the second round of its Fellowship Program on Turkey. The program aims at Post-Docs and senior fellows with a university or think tank affiliation in Turkey.

The fellows are expected to publish their results as Peer-reviewed SWP research papers.

The Fellowship includes financial support for up to one year. Monthly remuneration ranges from 2.500 Euro to a max of 3.000 Euro, depending on the seniority of the fellow. In addition, travel expenses can be covered for research expeditions or conference participation. The program is currently designed for two fellows for the duration of up to one year.
