The Universities of Bremen and Göttingen (Dept of Politics) and the University of Oxford (Dept of Politics and International Relations & Institute of European and Comparative Law) invite applications from scholars for a number of two-year postdoctoral Fellowships based mainly at the University of Oxford.
The Fellowships are open to people of all nationalities who work in the fields of political science, law, history, sociology or economics. The only restriction is that the Fellows should work on the transformation of the modern state (broadly conceived) with a focus on Western Europe and/or European integration. The programme welcomes international comparative perspectives extending to all parts of Europe as well as comparisons between the European Union and other regional blocks.
This Fellowship Programme, which has been running since September 2009, aims to enable outstanding scholars at the start of their careers to spend time in an intellectually stimulating environment and to turn their finished doctoral theses into an English-language manuscript suitable for publication with a good university press. The programme also intends to establish an international network of leading scholars specialising in the study of the state.
The new Fellows will start in September 2010. The Programme is open to scholars who hold a doctorate in a relevant discipline (political science, law, history or economics) or can provide evidence of imminent completion (the oral examination must take place by July 2010). To be eligible, applicants should not have completed more than 2 years of academic work after finishing their doctorate by the application deadline.
The closing deadline for applications is 12:00 CET on 15 March, 2010. Please send or email applications to Professor Lothar Probst, InIIS, Linzerstr. 4, D-28359 Bremen, Germany (firstname.lastname@example.org).
