Purpose: Young scientists from across the world are invited to conduct a 12-month transdisciplinary collaborative RESEARCH STAY at the Goethe University of Frankfurt/Main and to join the JQYA working on the academy platform. The research stay is exclusively dedicated to the theme "Tenets, Variations, Transformations."
We award one international scientist per year with € 60,000 as a personal grant to cover costs during the research stay. Further, we provide a furnished apartment and a fully equipped office at a prime location at low prices. The successful candidate will become an International JQYA Fellow of the Johanna Quandt Young Academy, co-shape the Academy Program, and boost his/her own scientific career.
Academy Program: The questions around the JQYA's annual theme will be explored within the integral elements of the Academy Program, such as monthly round-table discussions, symposia, workshops, impulse-giving events with our eminent Senior Scientists, etc.
Topic: "Tenets, Variations, Transformations" - these three key terms offer multiple avenues for a truly interdisciplinary discussion. As basic principles, tenets not only guide the practice of scientists across disciplines, but also the social and political life in our societies. Even where widely accepted, such principles are, however, subject to important variations. Any changes over time, that are transformative in scope, challenge the fundamental nature of tenets. Such shifts of paradigm result in a conceptual re-thinking: the discovery of unknown natural laws, changes of institutional policies, and the definition of novel traditions/priorities/fields, ect.
Location: The city of Frankfurt am Main, located in the middle of Germany and Europe, is an attractive, diverse, and scientifically inspiring place for conducting research. The guest scientist can use the extensive infrastructural network within the Rhein-Main-Universities Alliance.
Eligibility: Advanced postdocs with proven scientific independency, independent group leaders, assistant professors with currently funded position.
Documents: (1) CV with a list of publications and conference participations; (2) a letter of motivation explaining you research ideas concerning "Tenets, Variations, Transformations" (no longer than 4 pages); (3) two international references; (4) the hosting institution's agreement to a 12 months' leave of absence. The form "Statement of the home institution" can be downloaded from our homepage.
