The Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research
(KLI) in Klosterneuburg (Austria) announces 5 Writing-Up Fellowships
for late-stage PhD students working on topics related to “Dealing
with diversity in the life and sustainability sciences”. This call
aims to support an interdisciplinary cohort of late-stage PhD
students whose work deals with diversity in the life and
sustainability sciences. The 5 KLI Writing-up Fellowships are not
restricted to specific topics or approaches. However, as A Home to
Theory that Matters, the KLI will support projects that engage with
theoretical and conceptual work in the life and sustainability
sciences as well as philosophical, historical, and sociological work
related to these fields. Though not exclusively, we look forward to
receiving applications especially in the following research areas:
(1) Theories and concepts to explain the evolution of human
diversity, (2) Theories and concepts to understand and foster
diversity of life forms, (3) Theories and concepts about diversity,
equity, and inclusion in the life and sustainability sciences.

Who is encouraged to apply? The fellowships aim to support doctoral
students in the final stage of their PhD research. Writing-up
fellowships are individual fellowships awarded to work independently
on the applicant’s research project supervised by their advisor in
the home university. The 5 fellowships are especially well-suited for
two categories of PhD students: (1) Those who have completed
empirical research and wish to use the Writing-up fellowship to
elaborate on the (conceptual, epistemological, and methodological)
underpinnings and implications of their work. (2) Those whose
research deals with the historical, philosophical, and conceptual
foundations of research in the disciplines mentioned above in
relation to diversity.

working at the KLI, and the application and selection process, please
