Who we are

The KU Center for Advanced Studies “Dialogical Cultures – Critical Reflection Spaces for Cultural Studies and Social Sciences” (KU CAS) has recently been established as a research platform at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt to promote interdisciplinary research and dialogical scholarly exchange in the fields of cultural studies, social sciences, and the humanities across disciplinary boundaries and different positions in the academic career.

Who we are looking for

The Dialogical Cultures Senior Fellowship addresses experienced scholars holding either a professorship or an equivalent postdoctoral research position at a university or a research institution. The Dialogical Cultures Junior Fellowship / Henriette Herz Fellowship addresses early-stage researchers at the postdoctoral career level. The Henriette Herz Fellow­ship is open for applications by international incoming scholars only.

For all Fellowships, we are looking for candidates who…

  • are pursuing a thematically and/or methodologically innovative research project that reflects the overall inter­disciplinary KU CAS research agenda and perspective of “dialogical cultures”;
  • have an outstanding academic track record, e.g. in terms of publications, third-party funding, participation at conferences, academic awards/prices etc. at an international level and suitable to academic career stage;
  • are presenting a convincing plan for completing a substantial research publication (monograph or journal article) or a third-party funding application during their stay;
  • are interested in interdisciplinary scholarly exchange and committed to presenting and discussing their work at joint KU CAS events and activities (brownbag meetings, colloquia, etc.);
  • are committed to extending their academic networks and learning more about opportunities of research stays and academic careers in Germany (esp. for postdocs and international candidates).

What we offer

  • A research residency at a small, familial “college-like” German university, located in the picturesque historical town of Eichstätt in the heart of Bavaria, at half a distance between the metropolitan areas of Nuremburg and Munich;
  • An inspiring environment in which to dedicate your time to your research project, either in its early stage (third-party funding application) or final phase (completing a publication);
  • Full affiliation to the KU CAS for the duration of the stay with its support infrastructure, access to the university’s research facilities and services, as well as office space and equipment;
  • A co-hosting arrangement with a senior and junior scholar at the KU CAS to fully integrate you in the hosting department and the vibrant KU campus life;
  • A monthly scholarship of 5,000 EUR for senior and 3,500 EUR for junior/Henriette Herz fellows to be granted for Fellowships of one to four months duration as a lump sum covering all costs for travel, accommodation, and subsistence etc. (retirement supplements or healthcare insurance allowances are not included);
  • German academic career support services especially for international postdoctoral applicants in the form of workshops and mentoring tailored towards your needs and interests.
