The Interdisciplinary Centre for European Studies (ICES) at Europa-Universität Flensburg seeks to fill the following one-year positionby March 1, 2023.
The employment start date may be modified if the selected candidate has a prior contractual commitment.
In keeping with the main focus of this position, the research associate should develop and submit a funding proposal to the German Research Foundation DFG (for example, within the scope of its funding lines for national research grants, international calls, or the Emmy-Noether program) or the EU research framework program Horizon Europe (e.g., Global Challenges, European Research Council Grants). The goal in writing the porposal is for the selected candidate to obtain funding for and thus ensure the continuation of their own position and research at Europa-Universität Flensburg. Through this start-up funding, EUF aims to promote and support early-stage researchers by giving them access to special qualification and employment opportunities.
This year's call for proposals targets early-stage researchers with experience in European research in the humanities and/or social sciences. We especially welcome applicants with an interest in the overarching research program of the Interdisciplinary Centre for European Studies (ICES) and/or its research axes and represented disciplines.
ICES is the hub of interdisciplinary research on Europe at Europa-Universität Flensburg and its signature research center. Here, EUF researchers connect with each other across disciplines, institutes and universities. The innovative, interdisciplinary environment at ICES enables early-stage researchers, in particular, to develop new explanatory approaches and innovative proposals. With an overarching focus on 'Peripheries & Centrality' in the foreground, the ICES research program encompasses the following research axes: ‘Justice & Democracy,' 'Welfare & Work,' 'Culture & Identity,' and 'Communication & Evidence.'
Application requirements: Qualified early-stage researchers may apply by submitting an exposé (max. 5 pages) that clearly indicates how the requested project will be anchored at EUF and concisely outlines its content, scope and objectives, the state of current research, and the applicant’s own preliminary work to date. A recommendation from an outside expert affirming the quality of the proposed research project and the existence of a research gap is also required.
