Call for Johannes Geiss Fellowship 2023

The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern, Switzerland invites applications for the Johannes Geiss Fellowship (JGF).

The fellowship was established in 2015 to attract internationally renowned scientists who will make a demonstrable contribution to the ISSI mission by pursuing ambitious independent research. With this fellowship ISSI honors the memory of Johannes Geiss for his contributions to the space sciences in general, and for laying the foundation for ISSI in particular. 

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. Applications related to space and solar physics, solar system science, astrobiology, astronomy & astrophysics, cosmology, as well as Earth sciences from space are welcome.

The JGF provides a stipend covering travel costs and living expenses for a stay at ISSI in Bern (Switzerland) 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.
