Call Johannes Geiss Fellowship 2024

The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern, Switzerland invites applications for the Johannes Geiss Fellowship (JGF). With this fellowship ISSI honors the memory of Johannes Geiss, the founder of ISSI, and his contributions to the space sciences.

The fellowship was established in 2015 to attract internationally renowned scientists to make a demonstrable contribution to the ISSI mission by pursuing ambitious independent research, in any of the disciplines that are part of ISSI’s core mission: astronomy & astrophysics, astrobiology, plasma physics, solar physics, solar system science, Earth sciences from space.

The Johannes Geiss Fellow is expected to participate in ISSI activities and to collaborate with ISSI’s scientific staff and visitors, as well as with research institutes in Switzerland and neighboring countries. The Johannes Geiss Fellow is invited to give public lectures in close collaboration with the Pro ISSI Association.

The JGF provides a stipend covering travel costs and living expenses for a stay at ISSI in Bern of up to 6 months. ISSI can host fellows either for a single extended visit (e.g., during a sabbatical) or for several shorter duration stays.
