Visiting Fellowship Programme
The Centre for Southeast European Studies of the University of Graz is currently accepting applications for Visiting Fellows for the academic year 2019-20. The Centre provides research facilities for fellows, including a working place, access to the library and full participation in the activities of the centre for a period of one semester (4 months,either October-January or March-June). Visiting Fellows will receive a small budget to organise a public event or lecture.
Visiting fellows are expected to present their work in a research seminar, discuss their research informally with members of the centre and contribute a working paper to the centre's working paper series and write a contribution to the research blog of the centre. Visiting fellows are also encouraged to contribute to seminars, classes and other teaching and research activities of the centre.
The Centre does not provide financial assistance, but will support applications to different scholarship programs for visiting scholars, including the Ernst Mach Scholarship (http://www.oead.at/mach).
We are an interdisciplinary centre at the University of Graz devoted to research and teaching on Southeastern Europe. The centre reflects the broader focus of the University of Graz on Southeastern Europe and brings together researchers from different institutes and faculties working on the region. We also offer a Master Program in Southeast European Studies jointly with the University of Belgrade and coordinate a doctoral program on Southeastern Europe. The focus of the centre’s activities is contemporary Southeastern Europe, including Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Turkey. The centre has a strong research interest in former Yugoslavia and Turkey, but will consider applications from scholars working on other regions and countries of Southeastern Europe and fellows with a historical focus in their research.
Please submit a CV, a one page research plan and two letters of recommendation either in German or English to Beate Hainschek (beate.hainschek(at)uni-graz.at) by 12 January 2019. We welcome applications from advanced doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers and senior academics. Applicants from a variety of disciplines (including history, law, political science, law, anthropology, sociology, economics) will be considered. We also strongly encourage researchers engaged in comparative work (both within the region and between regions and countries) to apply.
