Fellowships at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research

The Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research is pleased to announce its call for applications for fellowships roughly beginning in April 2015.

Fellows will join the Centre for a period of six to twelve months. The fellowships provide a working space in fully equipped offices and a competitive stipend commensurate with applicants’ level of professional experience. In order to maximize their engagement with the community at the Centre, during their fellowship terms fellows are expected to routinely spend time in and conduct much of their work from Duisburg, in most cases requiring residency in Duisburg or the Rhein-Ruhr region. They should show interest in contributing to the Centre’s overall line of research and enthusiastically embrace its inter- and multidisciplinary research environment. A successfully completed PhD is required for eligibility for a fellowship.

The Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research is an independent research institution of the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The four research units of the Centre focus on (1) The (Im)Possibility of Cooperation, (2) Global Cultural Conflicts and Transcultural Cooperation, (3) Global Governance Revisited, and (4) Paradoxes and Perspectives of Democratisation.

For this call, the Centre is especially interested in the following topics:
• Global diasporas and regional movements
• Experimental analyses of international negotiations
• Micro-politics of negotiation processes
• Democracy and post-democracy in a global age
• Dynamics of legal pluralities

Applications (in English) should contain a cover letter, your CV, a concise research proposal (3-5 pages) plus one relevant publication. Please indicate your preferred period of stay. Please submit your application electronically using our website:

The deadline for application is the 2nd of July 2014. We particularly encourage female researchers and scholars from the Global South to apply. The next call for applications will be issued in October 2014.
