The DK offers several temporary positions for research fellows. A fellow may either act as an independent investigator or under the supervision of a principal investigator. The position of research fellow requires a doctoral degree. A research fellow may also provide a specific class or course which is complementary to the existing program at the University of Salzburg. Fellow positions do typically not include a full salary but may come with individual packages concerning travel and living expenses. Fellows will typically have a salaried post either with their college or the university and may use a time period from several weeks up to a year to affiliate with one of the research clusters to increase international experience and to contribute their specific expertise.
