Deadline: March 31, 2020
Applications are open for the Balzan Junior Fellowships in Global History 2020/2021. The Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of Freiburg, Germany in conjunction with the International Balzan Prize Foundation offers up to four 6-month Junior Fellowships in Global History in the academic year 2020/21.
Fellows will join the multidisciplinary – and mainly English-speaking – community at FRIAS and will have full access to the facilities and activities of the Institute as well as to the rich academic life at Freiburg University. They have no formal obligations apart from presenting their work to the FRIAS Humanities and Social Sciences Colloquium and joining Jürgen Osterhammel and the co-director of the Balzan-FRIAS Project in Global History, Professor Stefanie Gänger (Heidelberg), in occasional workshops and informal discussions on conceptual issues of global history. Full-time presence at FRIAS is expected as the main purpose of the fellowship is to provide time for undisturbed work on a book project.
The full-time fellowships will be awarded for six months from October 2020 to March 2021 or, alternatively, from February to July 2021. Stays of shorter duration are also possible. Applicants are asked to state their temporal preferences.
Electronic applications including
in one single PDF-file should be sent to Professor Jürgen Osterhammel via firstname.lastname@example.org. Furthermore, a separate PDF-file of the PhD thesis (published or in manuscript) should be added to the application.
