The Lichtenberg-Kolleg, the Göttingen Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences, invites applications for up to

10 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), and on religion, but also on “bridges” between the human and natural sciences and intellectual history.

For the period October 2017 – July 2019 we are inviting early career scholars to join one of the research groups for the study of either:

  • Globalising the Enlightenment: Knowledge, Culture, Travel, Exchange and Collections,
  • Human Rights, Constitutional Politics and Religious Diversity, or:
  • Moritz Stern Fellowships in Modern Jewish Studies: Cultural, Intellectual and Literary History (in cooperation with the Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities)

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.

Fellowships are open to candidates who have obtained a doctorate within the last 6 years.

The deadline for applications is February 12th, 2017.
