The community of Fellows forms the core of the Wissenschaftskolleg. The great majority of these Fellows work on individual research projects. Young researchers from the life sciences are organized in the College for Life Sciences.

Living and Working

As a rule, the Fellows come to Berlin for one academic year of ten months (usually from 16 September to 15 July). The families of the Fellows are also welcome and form an integral component of the temporary community. The Rector and the staff regard it as their responsibility to offer the Fellows the best possible conditions for their research work.
