The Munich Centre for Global History is advertising research fellowships for the summer term 2021. The call is open for postdoctoral researchers and the deadline for applications is May 31, 2020.

Fellows will spend one to three months at the interdisciplinary Munich Centre for Global History at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. During their stay, they will work on a research project of their own choice. While the program is open to all topics in global history or its neighbouring fields, proposals that engage with the Centre's new research focus on «global dis:connections» are particularly welcome.


Postdoctoral researchers from all disciplines are invited to apply. The fellowships entail economy travel to and from Munich, a monthly living allowance, free housing in a furnished studio apartment in Munich as well as office space at the Munich Centre for Global History. The deadline for applications is May 31, 2020.

The Munich Centre for Global History is a recently founded, interdisciplinary centre that seeks to bundle global history research in Munich and serves as a platform for innovative projects and approaches in the field. A wide range of different disciplines with a historiographical angle - such as archaeology, geography, art history or theatre studies - are contributing to the centre.
