The Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies (HCTS) welcomes applications for fellowships starting in October 1, 2015. The HCTS is an Institute for Advanced Studies at Heidelberg University.
Fellows at the HCTS are invited to pursue their own research, with a suggested focus on the themed initiative “'In the name of Truth and Justice' – The Violence of Universalisms”; please visit www.asia-europe.uni-heidelberg.de/en/hcts-initiatives for more information about the themed initiative. Researchers working on all historical periods, all regions of the world and from all relevant disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply and to develop new, innovative ways to pursue their research from a transcultural perspective.
Four visiting fellowships are open for scholars worldwide; another four fellowships are reserved for senior and junior internal scholars from Heidelberg University. Visiting fellows will receive a stipend based on the rates of the German Research Foundation; internal fellows will receive funds for reducing their teaching load. In addition, all fellows will benefit from finest research facilities, a stimulating environment of a multi-disciplinary and international community of first-rate scholars, and an excellent digital humanities unit.
The deadline for application is January 15, 2015.
