The Lichtenberg-Kolleg, the Göttingen Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences, invites applications for Early Career Fellowships for 2019-2021 for PostDoctoral Research.
Opening its doors in 1737 Göttingen quickly established itself as one of Europe’s leading Enlightenment universities. Named after one of the most important and versatile representatives of the Göttingen Enlightenment, the Lichtenberg-Kolleg is an interdisciplinary research institute with a strong focus not only on religion in the modern world, the Enlightenment(s) as well as the history of political thought/intellectual history but also on “bridges” between the human and natural sciences.
For the period October 2019 to July 2021 we are inviting early career scholars to join one of the following research groups:
- Globalising the Enlightenment: Knowledge, Culture, Travel, Exchange and Collections,
- Human Rights, Constitutional Politics and Religious Diversity,
- European Intellectual History / History of Political Thought,
- Moritz Stern Fellowships in Modern Jewish Studies: Cultural, Intellectual and Literary History (in cooperation with the Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities).
The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply as they are underrepresented in this field. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude will be favoured.
All Fellowships are open to candidates who have received a doctorate within the last 6 years.
Deadline for applications: 3rd February 2019.
Please use the application portal for your application.
