The Lichtenberg-Kolleg, the Göttingen Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences, invites applications for up to 12 Early Career Fellowships
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 the Enlightenment(s), but also on “bridges” between the human and natural sciences and on issues of religion and modernity.
For the period October 2015 to July 2017 they are inviting junior scholars to join one of the research teams for the study of either:
– Globalising the Enlightenment: Knowledge, Culture, Travel, Exchange and Collections
– Human Rights, Constitutional Politics and Religious Diversity, or:
– Primate Cognition: Philosophical, Linguistic, and Historical Perspectives
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.
The deadline for applications is 2nd March 2015.
