Research Fellowships in Global History, Winter Term 2022/23
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 the Käte Hamburger Research Centre “Dis:connectivity in Processes of Globalisation” (globaldisconnect.org).
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 winter term 2022/23 should be taken up between mid-October 2022 and the end of February 2023.
