The MPIL Journalist in Residence Fellowship enables journalists with several years of experience to spend between six weeks and three months at the Institute. The time and duration of the stay are agreed individually. MPIL Journalists in Residence are free to pursue their own research. They are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to exchange ideas with researchers at the institute and to participate in our various work and discussion formats.
The MPIL Journalist in Residence Fellowship is geared towards freelance and staff journalists from all media (print, online, radio, television) who report and write regularly on legal and constitutional topics, or topics from politics, the economy and research-related topics.
A research grant is offered for the duration of the stay. The Institute provides desk space and access to all research resources of the Institute's library.
The next call for applications (for a fellowship in 2022) will most likely be launched in summer 2021.
Questions on the programme may be directed by e-mail to the Academic Coordinator, Alexandra Kemmerer (firstname.lastname@example.org); questions regarding the application procedure should be directed to the Human Resources Department (email@example.com).
