Call for Proposals – Junior Researcher in Residence

As part of the support program for young scholars, the Center for Advanced Studies at LMU Munich (CASLMU) is offering research stays for the winter semester 2015/16 as a Junior Researcher in Residence

Our offer: The status of a Junior Researcher in Residence includes a workspace in the Seestraße building and the use of the extensive resources of CAS LMU. In the context of the research project in question, workshops and conferences can be held and both national and international visiting fellows invited.
For university assistants, the program also includes the possibility to reduce the prescribed teaching workload and compensate for the loss of seminar time.

Your profile: The program is particularly aimed at academic staff members and scholarship recipients from the fields of humanities, cultural studies and social sciences at LMU Munich who, within their qualification level, seek a wider university and professional audience on the one hand, and who require optimal conditions for advancing or completing their research projects on the other hand. A duration of one semester is envisaged for the research stay. Applications are open to academic staff members and scholarship recipients of LMU Munich whose dissertation has been completed to an excellent standard.

Application: The basis for an application is an outline (4-5 pages) of the intended research project to be realized during the period of the research stay at CAS LMU. Applications should also contain relevant credentials and a résumé including a list of publications. In order to strengthen the role of women in research, young female scholars are strongly encouraged to apply.

Further information can be obtained from Dr. Susanne Schaffrath.

Please send your complete application by post and electronically (in one PDF file) to the director of the Center for Advanced Studies by 31 March 2015:
