Humboldt University 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
2017-2018 academic year. Eight to twelve fellowships will be awarded. Applications are due in Berlin
on 15 September 2016.
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 2017 and end on
31 July 2018. 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.
