Senior Fellowships

for a duration of 2 to 6 months each. Remuneration will take the form of a monthly flat rate of 6,000.00 Euros to account for accommodation and living expenses, as well as a further monthly sum of 1,500.00 Eurosas a research allowance to finance conference travels and research assistants as well as other aspects of Senior Fellows’ research projects. Relocation expenses to and from Konstanz will be covered by the Cluster (some limitations apply).

Applications are open to researchers from outside the University of Konstanz with an established track record and international visibility, as well as a keen interest in the Cluster’s concepts and lines of research.

We are looking for scholars with an established track record in inequality research broadly defined and in fields directly related to the Cluster’s research agenda, though not necessarily in disciplines already represented at the Cluster. Senior Fellows will become members of the Cluster and will actively participate in Cluster activities.

To apply, please submit the following documents:

  • A research proposal that contributes to the research agenda of the Cluster, investigating core aspects of the political dimension of inequality. It should not exceed four pages in length, and should also include the duration and the schedule of the project.
  • Curriculum vitae and a list of publications.

Please arrange your application documents into a single PDF file. To submit your application, please use the online form below.

Application deadline: 13 November 2019, 12:00 CET
