Research Fellowships in Global History, Spring Term 2020
The Munich Centre for Global History understands global history as a particular research perspective that focuses on the significance of global connections and entanglements and examines the prerequisites, conditions and meanings of global exchange in human history. The centre is the principal clearing house for research in global history at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Munich higher learning environment. It also operates as an incubator for innovative research endeavours in global history. New initiatives can originate in the exchange between the different projects at the centre, in the stimuli received from the lecture series or the international fellowship programme or in the centre's promotion of young researchers.
The Munich Centre for Global History attaches great importance on contributing to the ongoing conceptual re-evaluation of global history on the basis of profound empirical research.
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 2019/20 should be taken up between mid-October 2019 and the end of February 2020.
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.
