Indication of interest in arrangement 1 or 2
 *
1. Living and mobility allowance
Arrangement1:
Fellows in the senior scheme are typically employed as guest professors. The guest professorship is a formal employment contract with the University of Freiburg, valid for the duration of the fellowship. By signing an employment contract with the University of Freiburg, all fellows are covered by national insurance (unemployment, pension, health and accident insurance). A Senior Fellow in this regular scheme receives approximately 7,000 € per month pre-tax (depending on personal premises about 30-35 % for tax and mandatory contributions to social security will be deducted). Fellows accompanied by at least one child receive an additional monthly family allowance of 250 €.
Arrangement 2:
Those fellows who have a full-time contract (incl. a comprehensive social security coverage) and continuously receive their full salary from their home institution receive an additional contract as a guest professor at the University of Freiburg to compensate them for the extra costs of their stay in Freiburg. This should cover extra costs for their stay abroad, the rent of an apartment and additional expenses for health insurance in Germany. Hence, a senior fellow in this “on paid leave scheme” receives 3,050 € per month pre-tax plus the family allowance of 250 € per month (if applicable).
Do you plan to spend the fellowship at FRIAS on unpaid leave?

3. Additional financial support
For all fellows, a mobility allowance of 125 € per month covers relocation costs.
