Affiliated Postdoctoral Researchers
JLU postdocs at partner departments (FB03, 04, 05) and centres (ZMI, GK etc.) may apply to become affiliated postdoctoral researchers at the GCSC. While a GCSC affiliation does not include funding (neither personal nor project sponsoring), it provides early stage researchers with the opportunity to benefit from the GCSC’s collaborative research infrastructure and its networks. Affiliated researchers contribute to one or more of the GCSC’s Research Areas and partake in events organised through our centre, which provides a hub for exchanging ideas and developing projects in the study of culture.
When applying, please submit the following documents:
- A short letter of intent outlining your motivation and the extent to which your work contributes to one or more of the GCSC’s research areas (1-2 pages maximum). In your letter, please specify at least one research area which you would like to be involved in
- An exposé of one of your current research projects (5-10 pages)
- A current Curriculum Vitae
Applications should be sent to Dr. Jens Kugele (Head of Research Coordination) or to
International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture
Alter Steinbacher Weg 38
In case of positive review by the GCSC Executive Board, the GCSC will forward your application to the speakers of the Research Area/s you wish to contribute to. If the speakers too, approve of your application, the Board of Directors of the GCSC formally decides on your status.
