Deadline 31 May 2020
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, one of the leading research universities in
Europe, with a more than 500-year-long tradition, is advertising up to five research
fellowships for scholars active in global history. The university is committed to the
highest international standards of excellence in research and teaching. Fellows will
be based at the interdisciplinary Munich Centre for Global History. During their stay,
they will work on a research project of their own choice. While the programme is open
to all topics in global history or its neighbouring fields, we are particularly interested
in proposals that engage with a new research focus on “global dis:connections” that
we have recently established in cooperation with CASLMU
Fellows have no teaching obligation. They are expected to work on their research
projects and actively engage with the scholarly community at the university and
particularly at the centre. The fellowships are open to postdoctoral researchers from
all disciplines. Scholars who are already advanced in their academic careers and have
a strong international track record are explicitly encouraged to apply. Depending on
the situation of the applicant and the character of the project, the duration of the
fellowship will be between one and three months. Fellowships for the summer term
2021 should be taken up between mid-April and the end of July 2021.
The fellowship entails economy travel to and from Munich, a monthly living allowance,
free housing in a furnished studio apartment in Munich as well as office space at the
Munich Centre for Global History. Health insurance or other social benefits are not
part of the fellowship and the responsibility of the fellow.
Applications will include a
letter of motivation, a short outline of the research to be done during the fellowship
(1-2 pages) and a CV. Please also include information as to the preferred time and
duration of the fellowship. All application material should be send electronically as
one PDF-file to Dr Susanne Hohler (firstname.lastname@example.org) until 31 May 2020.
For more information
Enquiries should also be directed to Dr Hohler or to the centre’s founding director
Professor Roland Wenzlhuemer (email@example.com).
