Deutsches Historisches Institut Washington: Binationales Tandemprogramm zur Geschichte der Migration

Stichtag: 15.01.2023 Stipendien

Das DHI Washington bietet in Kooperation mit dem Institute of European Studies der UC Berkeley deutschen und nordamerikanischen Postdocs die Möglichkeit, ein binationales Forschungstandem aufzubauen. Das Fellowship-Programm trägt zum Aufbau des neuen Forschungsnetzwerks "Knowledge in Transit - Migrants' Knowledge in Comparative Perspective" am DHI-Pazifikbüro in Berkeley bei.

The German Historical Institute (GHI) is seeking applications for a Binational Visiting Fellow Tandem. The Fellowship program contributes to the creation of the new research network “Knowledge in Transit - Migrants’ Knowledge in Comparative Perspective” at the GHI's Pacific Office in Berkeley. The visiting fellow tandem program is funded by the VolkswagenStiftung.

The GHI’s fellowship program promotes cutting-edge research in history and related disciplines and international exchange of scholars. For this purpose, the GHI in cooperation with the Institute of European Studies at UC Berkeley is now offering German and North American postdoctoral scholars the opportunity to develop a binational research tandem which links up two academics – one from Germany and one from North America – working on research in the field of history of migration. The projects should contain productive areas of overlap with the tandem partner either in their topics or in their conceptual frameworks.

The program is designed for postdoctoral historians with a strong interest in the history of knowledge and an outstanding academic record. For German applicants, a good working knowledge of English is essential. Applicants may apply individually and be matched by the GHI or apply together with their potential tandem partner.

Funding will be provided for a 12-month stay at the GHI's Pacific Office (UC Berkeley). The monthly stipend will be $4230 per month. In addition, fellowship recipients will receive reimbursement for their round-trip economy airfare. The GHI regrets that it is unable to provide accommodation for its fellows. Deadline for applications is January 15, 2023.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Applicants should have completed a PhD before the start date of the fellowship
  • Prospective fellows should be currently or recently affiliated with a North American or European research institution or university at the time of their application
  • Applicants should be able to take leave for the duration of the program to be in residence in Berkeley, CA for the fellowship
