The Lichtenberg-Kolleg, the Göttingen Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences, invites applications for up to 4 Early Career Fellowships.

Opening its doors in 1737 Göttingen quickly established itself as one of Europe’s leading Enlightenment universities. Named after one of the most important and versatile representatives of the Göttingen Enlightenment, the Lichtenberg-Kolleg is an interdisciplinary research institute with a strong focus not only on the Enlightenment(s), but also on “bridges” between the human and natural sciences and the history of political thought.

For the period March 2016 to July 2017 we are inviting early career scholars to join one of the research groups for the study of either:

–          Globalising the Enlightenment: Knowledge, Culture, Travel, Exchange and Collections (1 Fellowship), or:

–          European Intellectual History / History of Political Thought (2 Fellowships), or:

–          Primate Cognition: Philosophical, Linguistic, and Historical Perspectives (1 Fellowship).

Second Call for STSM Applications 2105 final

Briefing document for COST Action IS1310 June 2015[2]

We are pleased to announce a second call for applications for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMS) relating to COST Action IS 1310: Reassembling the Republic of Letters, 1500-1800.  This funding promotes international mobility between COST Countries participating in this Action, particularly for Early Stage Researchers.  A total of €24,000 is available to fund up to 16 STSMs, to a maximum of €2500.  Most successful applications will contribute directly to fulfilling the agendas of one or more of the Action’s six Working Groups, a summary of which is attached.  The deadline for completed applications is midnight on 27 July 2015.

 

Applications are invited for missions occurring between 1 August 2015, and 30 June 2016 (the end of our second financial year).

 

Further information regarding the programme and the eligibility criteria is also attached.

 

Purpose of a STSM

 

STSM are aimed at strengthening existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing researchers participating in a given COST Action to visit an institution in another participating COST country. A STSM should contribute to the specific scientific objectives of the COST Action, while at the same time enabling Researchers to learn new techniques or gain access to specific expertise, instruments and/or methods not available in their own institutions.

 

In the specific case of COST Action “Reassembling the Republic of Letters”, this call explicitly addresses persons who deal with the digital processing of (early modern) learned correspondence, from different professional perspectives: librarians and archivists; scholars; IT specialists; digital humanities and media experts.  For detailed information on COST Action IS1310, please see the Memorandum of Understanding (available at http://www.cost.eu/domains_actions/isch/Actions/IS1310 ).

 

STSMs are especially (although not exclusively) targeted at persons at early stages of their professional career (defined as eight years since the award of the PhD or equivalent). .We also particularly encourage the application of women, and/or persons from “inclusiveness countries” (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, FYR Macedonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey).

 

Please see the full call for STSM Applications in the document attached to this Email.  For COST STSM funding rules, please see Section 6 of the COST Vademecum Part 1: COST Action (available at http://www.cost.eu/participate/guidelines).
