Dear AOIRers,

I would like to use the possibility to inform you about our this years
fellowship program. The Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and
Society (HIIG | @HIIG_berlin) which has been founded in March 2012 is meant
to enable innovative scientific research in the field of Internet and
society and to observe the development of the Internet in its interplay
with societal transformation processes.
This year the HIIG opens its doors for fellows from all over the world
again. We invite applications from early stage researchers pursuing a
project of transdisciplinary Internet research. If you are seeking exchange
regarding your research aspirations and find our objectives to match yours
or to complement them, we are looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

Feel free to share our call.



Our fellowship <http://www.hiig.de/en/fellow-programme/> provides
innovative thinkers a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and set
off new initiatives in an inviting intellectual environment. The selected
fellows are very welcome to collaborate in a growing international team and
to participate in the research activities at our institute. We encourage
you to actively shape your stay according to your research interests. We
offer a number of opportunities to get involved with our research programme
and discuss your research project with the HIIG research team, such as:

   - Developing a paper concerning your research project, e.g. writing a
   journal paper in our SSRN Internet & Society
   - Holding a presentation about a topic of your choice in our weekly
   Journal Club
   - Organising a workshop of your research topic
   - Engage in joint activities and projects with other fellows
   - And more - according to your interest


Based in the heart of Berlin we will provide you with modern office space
that you will share with our researchers. Fellows are expected to bring
their own funding through their home institution or outside grants. Fellows
