Research Fellowships in Global History, Academic Year 2023/24
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. Fellowships have a maximum duration of two months and need to be consumed during term time. For the academic year 2023/24, this encompasses the time from mid-October 2023 to early February 2024 and from mid-April to late July 2024.
