        Subject: CfA : 10 Junior (postdoc) / Senior Fellowships in Aachen (Germany) starting in October 2022 for up to 12 months

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the call for 10 new fellowships for the
recently established Kate Hamburger Kolleg “Cultures of Research” at
RWTH Aachen University (Germany). Fellowships are starting in October
2022 for up to twelve months.

The Käte Hamburger Kolleg Aachen Cultures of Research (c:o/re) has
openings for a total of 10 international fellows for the academic year
2022/2023, starting in October 2022. Eligible applicants are expected to
come from the humanities, social sciences and STS as well as from
natural, life and technical sciences. This International Center for
Advanced Studies at RWTH Aachen University is funded by the German
Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Part of its mission is to
offer a free space to its fellows to develop their own research and to
exchange ideas up to 12 months.

              The topic Cultures of Research is positioned where the
fields of philosophy, sociology and history interface with natural
science and technology. The overall focus of the Center’s work is on
transformations of science and technology towards complexity,
life-likeness and emergence. We are particularly interested in
digitalization of research (simulation, artificial intelligence, machine
learning) for studying complex systems (e.g. climate change, energy
revolution, biologization, sustainability), in participatory
arrangements between science and society and in investigating histories
and varieties of cultures of research.

              Our aim is to explore new cultures of (transdisciplinary)
research, but also to develop new theories and methodologies for
investigating the mentioned scientific transformations.

Against this backdrop we encourage applications by candidates coming from:

   *   the humanities, social sciences and STS to explore scientific and
     technological transformations;
   * natural, life and technical sciences to explore complex systems; and
   *  arts, art history, science journalism and scientific illustration
     to explore the mediation and representation of complexities and
     complex findings in science and technology.


The international center is part of RWTH Aachen University (Germany),
which with a student body of 47,000 is one of the largest technical
universities in Europe. With over fifty professorships and ten
institutes from the humanities and social sciences, the Faculty of Arts
and Humanities is an integral part of the interdisciplinary culture of
teaching and research at RWTH Aachen University. Located at the borders
of Germany, Belgium, and The Netherlands (Euregio), it has close ties
with STS institutes at the universities of Maastricht and Liège, and
with the Jülich–Aachen Research Alliance (JARA BRAIN) at the neighboring
Jülich Research Center, a research campus of more than 5,000 researchers.


Fellows will join the international center for a maximum period of 12
months. The fellowships provide a full grant commensurate with
applicants’ level of professional experience, working space in
fully-equipped offices, logistical support, and access to the
interdisciplinary research landscape and research labs at RWTH Aachen
University. Fellows who take unpaid leave during their fellowship will
receive financial compensation in the form of a stipend; alternatively,
the center would pay for a teaching replacement at the fellow’s home
institution. In order to create a stimulating intellectual environment
among the resident research community, fellows are expected to routinely
conduct much of their work from Aachen during their fellowship.
Residency in Aachen is required and the center can support fellows in
the search for accommodation.


Scholars can apply for either junior or senior fellowships. For junior
fellows a successfully completed PhD is an eligibility requirement; for
senior fellowships a professorship (associate, full professorship) or
comparable position is expected. Applications (in English) should
include a cover/motivational letter (1 page), CV (tabular, max. 2
pages), a project outline incl. intended goals/outcome of the project
(max. 1300 words), and a list of publications. Please also submit a
writing sample (journal article or book-chapter). Applications can be
submitted via our application portal that you find here

The deadline for applications is December 31, 2021.

Female researchers and scholars from the Global South are particularly
encouraged to apply. For further information please visit the FAQs on our website
