Humboldt University in BerlinBerlin
Call for Applications
The International Research Center "Work and Human Lifecycle in Global History" at Humboldt University in Berlin,
funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) invites scholars to apply for international research fellowships
(senior scholars and postdoctoral candidates) for the 2018-2019 academic year. Eight to twelve fellowships will be awarded.
Applications are due in Berlin on 10 September 2017.
Candidates:We welcome candidates from various disciplines including history, anthropology, law, sociology,
political sciences, geography, economics, and area studies. Applicants should be at the postdoctoral level or senior scholars.
We would like the proposed projects to employ a historical and transregional perspective. Applications should ideally focus on
work / labour in relation to changing patterns of life course. Possible topic areas are, among others, the household, loss of
work, the relationship between work and non-work, work and gender, free and unfree labour. We welcome proposals about all regions
of the world and especially those that look at comparisons, conflicts, relations between different regions. A global history
perspective is not required; keeping an open mind to such ideas, however, is highly desirable.The fellowships will begin on 1 October 2018 and end on 31 July 2019.
Shorter fellowship terms will be possible.
Fellows will receive a monthly stipend to be determined. This is a residential fellowship. Fellows are obliged to work at the
research center in Berlin. A fully equipped office will be provided as well as organizational help for visa, housing, etc.
During the fellowship, we also encourage fellows to introduce their work to wider audiences within Berlin’s scientific community.
