Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg Seeking Junior and Senior Research Fellows

Fellowships, Professional Opportunities

The newly established DFG-funded Centre for Advanced Studies (Kollegforschungsgruppe) “Alternative Rationalities and Esoteric Practices from a Global Perspective” at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is seeking to appoint several Junior and Senior Research Fellowships from October 2022 to September 2023.

Fellows are expected to engage in their individual research on “alternative rationalities and esoteric practices from a global perspective,” and to actively participate in the centre’s weekly activities (lectures series, colloquia, workshops, etc.). Fellows are required to engage with the centre’s research agenda, to probe its methodological tools (e.g., a question matrix), and to be amenable to interdisciplinary and transcultural comparisons, in preparation for joint publications (e.g., collective papers). The working language of the Centre is English, therefore excellent spoken and written English is required. 

The latest submission date for applications is June 30, 2022. The preferred starting date is 1 October 2022.
