The Lichtenberg-Kolleg, the Göttingen Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences, invites applications for up to 7 Junior Research 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), but also on “bridges” between the human and natural sciences and on issues of religion and modernity.
For the period January 2014 to July 2015 the Kollege is inviting junior scholars to join one of the research teams for the study of either:
– “the Nature of Man in the European and Atlantic Enlightenment(s)”, or:
– “the Ethics of Living: Questions of Justice, Poverty, Life and Death in the Human and Natural sciences”
Furthermore, the Lichtenberg-Kolleg is announcing additional Junior Research Fellowships for the study of “Religious Toleration in the Modern World: Theory and Practice”. In cooperation with the Herzog August Library Wolfenbüttel and in the spirit of its famous librarian Lessing, we are inviting applications to join a research group of up to 6 Junior Research Fellows.
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.
All Fellowships are open to candidates who have received a doctorate within the last 5 years.
The deadline for applications is 3rd March 2013. For further particulars please see: www.lichtenbergkolleg.uni-goettingen.de
