The Cluster of Excellence "The Politics of Inequality“ at the University of Konstanz is calling for applications for External Senior Fellowships 2021.
Fellowship is available for a duration of 2 to 6 months per selected Fellow during the academic year 2021/22. The earliest starting date is 01 September 2021, the latest end date 31 September 2022.
Remuneration will take the form of a monthly flat rate of 6,000 Euros to account for accommodation and living expenses, as well as a further monthly sum of 1,500 Euros as 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 the fields directly related to the Cluster’s research agenda, though not necessarily in disciplines already represented at the Cluster. Senior Fellows will actively participate in Cluster activities.
