Call for Applications: The Jacobs Foundation Marbach Castle Residence Program 2017

Zurich, December 14, 2016
Deadline for submission: February 15, 2017

The Jacobs Foundation’s mission is to contribute to improving the development of current and future generations of young people to enable them to become socially responsible members of society. The Foundation promotes innovation in research and practice and aims at combining scientific findings with practical applications. Residencies at Marbach Castle, located on the shores of Lake Constance (Germany), aim at generating new knowledge in child and youth development through work on scientific/position papers, book projects or research proposals for international large-scale cooperation.

The Residence Program offers senior and/or junior (post-doctoral) researchers in the field of child and youth development an inspiring setting for conducting uninterrupted, goal-oriented, collaborative work. In addition to time for dedicated work on projects during the day, building new connections and collegial interaction with fellow residents from a variety of disciplines and geographies is a defining characteristic of the Marbach experience. Participants will take turn in presenting their current projects to one another. Meals and informal presentations of residents’ work provide an opportunity for dynamic discussion and engagement on child and youth development within and across disciplines.

The program provides twenty residencies from August 20 to August 27, 2017. We seek collaborative residencies for two to four people working on the same project. The Foundation provides meals and accommodation and covers air fare and local transportation to and from Marbach for all residents.

Applications are due by February 15, 2017 for the residency period August 20, 2017 through August 27, 2017. Applicants will be notified by end of March 2017.
