Call for Applications for the visiting scholars program of the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) Regensburg in 2018

The Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS, www.leibniz-ios.de) in Regensburg is one of the largest and longest-established institutions of its kind in Germany with a distinctly international orientation. It is an independent research facility with close links to the University of Regensburg. IOS conducts interdisciplinary research on the history as well as the economic and political development of Eastern and Southeastern Europe.

The IOS carries out research in four major areas:

• Governance Between Personalization and Formalization

• Labour Relations and Work Practices

• Patterns of Exchange (Migration and Trade)

• Frozen and Unfrozen Conflicts

Furthermore the IOS maintains a special library holding a stock of more than 330,000 media units of literature in humanities and social sciences relating to the countries of Eastern and Southeastern Europe.

Within the framework of its Visiting Research Fellow Program, the IOS encourages applications from historians, economists and political scientists as well as scholars of cognate disciplines. The duration of the research stay usually lasts between two and four weeks. The fellows are expected to conduct research relevant to the research profile of the institute. The allowance is determined by the duration of the stay and the applicant’s professional experience.

Together with the University of Regensburg, the institute provides an attractive research environment in a city known for its high quality of life. Regensburg has one of Germany’s largest preserved medieval cities holding the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
