Visiting Fellowships

The Center for Advanced Studies encourages international exchange at LMU by inviting outstanding international scholars and scientists to Munich.

Fellowship Program

The Center for Advanced Studies encourages international exchange at LMU by enabling the invitation of outstanding international scholars and scientists. The aim of this is to pave the way for international cooperation and to ease its further establishment.

The visiting fellows are provided with a workspace at CAS where they have the opportunity to meet colleagues and to engage in exchange, for example in regular internal colloquia. In order to make the visiting fellows and their research accessible to a wider university audience, a public lecture event is always included as part of their visits.


The decisive criterion for all visiting fellow invitations is that they serve to advance a project involving cooperation between the host and the fellow. For most of the programs, therefore, the professors teaching at LMU apply for the visiting fellowships, upon which the CAS board then decides. Invitations are extended for short visits of up to three months.

CAS Research Groups

The subject-based positions advertised as part of the CAS Research Groups use an open application process and allow for fellowships of up to one year.

Researchers at Risk Fellowship

Due to the tense political situation in neighbouring European countries and beyond, the CAS Board has decided to award two Short-Term Visiting Fellowships per year to researchers at risk.
