The Martin Buber Society of Fellows in the Humanities and Social Sciences<br>Call for Applications for PhD Fellowship for the academic year 2011-2012

Stichtag: 20.06.2011 Stipendien

The Martin Buber Society of Fellows, a joint venture of the Hebrew University and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), aims at fostering inter-disciplinary and inter-cultural academic discourse at the highest level among outstanding young scholars (post-doctoral and doctoral) from Israel and Germany together with selected senior colleagues. Each year the Academic Committee of the Martin Buber Society selects up to ten exceptionally gifted young scholars (five from Israel, five from Germany) in all fields of the humanities broadly defined and including social sciences (with the exception of law and economics).

While most of the scholars are Post Doctoral fellows, we are now happy to advertise an appointment for 2011-2012 ( October 1st 2011-September 30st 2012) for a German doctoral candidate. (Studying in a German University or a German citizen studying abroad).

Fellows will become part of a vibrant scholarly community reflecting the widest possible disciplinary spectrum in the humanities and social sciences and embodying a spirit of shared intellectual adventure. No special connection to Jewish studies or Israel is required. We are looking for creative humanists and social scientists with broad intellectual horizons. Discussions in the Martin Buber Society will take place in English (not in Hebrew or German).

The Fellows will be asked to move to Jerusalem. They will receive a monthly stipend of approximately 6840 Israeli shekels and a housing subsidy either for apartments in the university’s Student Village on Mount Scopus or in town. They will be given offices at the Hebrew University (Mount Scopus campus) and will participate in bi-weekly seminars, lectures, study excursions, and other interactive academic modes. Each will have the opportunity to pursue his or her individual research under optimal conditions for the term of his or her fellowship.

The deadline for applications for 2011-2012 is June 20, 2011. Documents should not arrive after this date. Applications must be sent as hard copy, without staples, and accompanying diskette and must include: a complete CV and list of publications; a discursive description of the PhD research (up to five pages double-spaced) and two letters of recommendation. Applications must be sent in English (with the exception of the evaluators' reports if they are written in another language). Applications should be submitted, by post, in a simple plastic folder, preferably with a transparent cover, along with a CD containing an electronic copy of all of the materials. Please avoid using staples on any of the documents and please do not send us application materials via email. Letters of recommendation must, however, be sent either directly by the recommender to the email address below or in sealed and signed envelopes.  Please do not send applications by email.

Postal Address:
