The Cluster invites applications for
Postdoctoral Fellowships (full-time, salary scale E13 TV-L)
for a duration of 12 months each, during which Fellows will pursue individual research projects. The earliest starting date is 1 October 2020. In principle, each position can be divided into two part-time positions. We explicitly encourage candidates from Non-OECD member countries to apply.
Applications are open to excellent postdoctoral researchers (minimum requirement: doctoral thesis submitted) with a keen interest in the Cluster’s concepts and lines of research. We are looking for individuals who are expected to have a strong impact on the field of inequality research in the years to come. We encourage open-minded candidates interested in interdisciplinary research with the ability to actively seek collaborations beyond their own discipline.
Fellows will become members of the Cluster. They will also benefit from the Clusters’ Methods Hub and from the services of the university’s Academic Staff Development unit. Fellows are expected to actively participate in Cluster activities, and will receive a research allowance i.e. to finance conference travels and research assistants.
