The Anna Polke Foundation offers scholarships each year for outstanding research projects on the work of Sigmar Polke. It promotes projects that open up new perspectives on his oeuvre. In 2019, the foundation is offering two research scholarships geared to art historians and academics in related disciplines from Germany and abroad. The scholarship recipients are selected by a commission of experts.

CALL FOR APPLICATION

We would like to specifically encourage young academics to apply. The Anna Polke Foundation is interested in a mutual exchange with the scholarship holders. Latter should benefit from a dynamic research environment and be supported by the foundation’s team.

Two scholarships will be awarded, each worth € 5,000. The division of the funding amount can be flexibly set up depending on the qualification as well as the living situation of the applicant and the nature of the project proposal. A redemption of the scholarship as monthly support over a certain period is conceivable as well as the promotion of a research stay or the combination of both. The total funding amount of € 5,000 must not be exceeded. Applicants are therefore requested to submit, in addition to their work plan, a list of the desired use of funds (cost calculation). During the funding period it is expected that applicants who are employed will dedicate themselves substantially to their research project.

The results of the funded research project are to be presented by the scholars within a public presentation – as a lecture, discussion or in a comparable format. Furthermore, a publication of the research findings would be desirable. The Anna Polke Foundation is currently planning its own publication series, in which the results of the funded projects could also be published. However, we ask for your understanding that this will be decided after completion of the scholarship on a case-by-case basis by a commission of expertsand will not be possible for each of the funded research projects.

APPLICATION

The application deadline for 2019 ends on May 1st 2019.

Applicants submit the following documents in German or English:

  • CV (incl. list of publications and relevant certificates/references)
  • Completed form (PDF)
  • Project outline (about 1,000-2,000 words)
  • Work schedule
  • Cost calculation (where appropriate)

Applicants will be informed of the decision after the commission meeting early June 2019. Approved funds must be used in 2019.

Please send your applications digitally and as PDF-files to: stang@anna-polke-stiftung.com. If you have any questions, please contact Sophia Stang.

Funding for:

EU and UK Students, International Students (2 positions)

Funding amount:

EU/UK Students: €25,000/£22,000 per annum International Students: €31,500/£28,000 per annum (this includes a fee waiver and an annual stipend of about €18,000/£16,000 per annum)

Applications are invited for prestigious European Research Council (ERC) project funded scholarships from EU and international students with outstanding academic records. The 2 fully funded 4-year PhD positions are part of the European Research Council (ERC) project “Technology Evolution in Regional Economies” (TechEvo). For further information about the project and the UCD Spatial Dynamics Lab see: www.ucd.ie/sdl.

The ERC TechEvo project aims to investigate how specific regional knowledge capabilities influence the evolution of local technology trajectories and thus shape geographies of economic prosperity. Focusing on the development of scientific, technical and commercial knowledge, and set in an evolutionary framework, the doctoral research projects will explore how innovative individuals and entities are embedded in social and cognitive local and non-local networks and provide important insights regarding place-specific characteristics and historical context, and territorial and sectoral policy initiatives in order to determine how regional technology pathways can be actively directed.

The objective of TechEvo is to provide an interactive online mapping and analysis tool that will enable private and public entities, as well as policy makers, to identify current gaps and future opportunities in regional knowledge spaces and networks, and to support their demand for more effective and efficient local knowledge utilization and technology evolution. Overall, TechEvo aims to develop new theoretical understandings that take into consideration previously unexplored factors and relationships in the study of regional innovation systems and technology evolution, and, simultaneously, contribute to theoretical discussions that to date have lacked empirical evidence.

The focus of the 2 anticipated doctoral research projects should fall within the following broadly defined research areas, but is not necessarily limited to topics:

  • Territorial and sectoral innovation and science & technology policy evaluation and analysis
  • The nexus between place-specific characteristics and the evolutionary trajectories of technology and industrial sectors
  • Spatial and sectoral pathways of knowledge production and appropriation with focus on the actual value (economic and societal) of knowledge

Each PhD project can combine a selection of quantitative and qualitative research methods, and candidates are also encouraged to develop their own theories and methodologies to extend the proposed TechEvo framework. The successful applicants will be working directly with TechEvo’s principal investigator, Prof. Dieter F. Kogler and a team of researchers in Ireland as well as a number of international collaborators. Opportunities to undertake short-term visits to partner institutes and research organizations in order to carry out collaborative and in situ data and modelling work will be available. The position will primarily be based at Spatial Dynamics Lab at University College Dublin (IE) as a part of Dr Kogler’s research group, who will also act as supervisor.

Applicants with a background in economic geography, economics, sociology, management studies, statistics, science & technology studies, computer sciences, or related engineering/science disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Requirements:

Applications are invited from enthusiastic and talented candidates with a research Master’s degree in the fields or related disciplines outlined above. We are looking for applicants who have:

  • Prior knowledge of and interest in theories of innovation and technological change.
  • A strong background in quantitative methodologies and analysis techniques.
  • Experience with spatial (econometric) analysis methods and expertise in the analysis of large-scale socio-economic and/or micro-level datasets are considered an asset.
  • Programming skills (R, Java, Python, etc.) and previous training in statistical (SPSS, STATA, SAS), spatial (GIS), and Social Network Analysis (UCI, Pajek, Gephi) software environments are desired, but not essential.
  • Excellent scientific writing and planning skills.
  • Good communication skills and an excellent command of spoken and written English are essential.

How to Apply:

To apply, please forward a detailed CV, your university transcripts (BA, MSc, etc.), the names of two references, your master thesis and/or any publications you have authored (a URL or a PDF) along with a letter outlining your motivation for applying for one of these positions (max. 2 pages, single spaced), to Dr. Kogler at dieter.kogler@ucd.ie. Please e-mail your application by May 25th 2018 at the very latest. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted by the end of May 2018; anticipated start date is September, 2018.

As a network of historians and their colleagues from neighbouring disciplines, ENIUGH continues a long tradition of studies on the past’s transnational and global dimensions. To foster and to refresh this tradition ENIUGH awards the Walter Markov Prize – endowed with € 1,500 – for an outstanding master’s or PhD thesis.

The prize honours an outstanding thesis that contributes to the research fields of Walter Markov: the comparative exploration of revolutions; social movements and decolonialization processes in Africa, Asia, and Latin America; historiographical traditions in various national contexts; and academic internationalisation in the course of the 20th century. The successful applicant will receive € 1,000 as support for the publication of his/her master’s or doctoral thesis.

Walter Markov (1909–1993) was a historian whose life and thinking was influenced by the shattered German past. In trying to integrate his experiences of National Socialism, his decade-long imprisonment in a state penitentiary under the Third Reich, and the following Cold War, which he looked at from the Eastern side, his works sought to integrate the intellectual potentials of the historical thinking of Karl Marx and impulses from French social history around the Annales school.

Markov’s way of addressing history can be best described as a “history from below”. Examining revolutions and revolutionary moments in history, he became one of the most important German historians working on the French Revolution. In continuing the Leipzig tradition in world and global history, initiated by Karl Lamprecht and the Institute for Cultural and Universal History, Markov became the director of this institute in 1949 and tried to bring all area studies at his university under one roof for comparative studies. Pursuing international cooperation with scholars on the other side of the iron curtain – especially with scholars from Latin America, Africa (where he was the first German guest professor), and Asia – he hoped to stand against any withdrawal of his university from border-crossing dialogue and mutual learning.

Papers that are submitted for the Walter Markov Prize are expected to take a global perspective on its subject, either by addressing it from a comparative point of view by examining processes of cultural transfers, or by seeking to understand the entanglements of various spatial frameworks.

The jury will consider all manuscripts (in German, English, or French) that had been handed in for examination not earlier than January 2016.

Applicants should submit their manuscripts, a summarizing abstract of 250 words and a brief CV electronically and as one PDF file to: headquarters@eniugh.org. The deadline for submissions is 31 May 2019.

An international committee nominated by the European Network in Universal and Global History will select the awardee among the submitting candidates.

Atlas Corps is an overseas fellowship for the world’s top social change leaders. Our mission is to address critical social issues by developing leaders, strengthening organizations, and promoting innovation through an overseas fellowship of skilled nonprofit professionals. The Atlas Corps Fellowship typically lasts 12 to 18 months. Fellows serve full-time at Host Organizations to develop leadership skills and learn effective practices through the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab professional development series and networking opportunities with other Fellows. This prestigious fellowship includes health insurance, enrollment in Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab, flight and visa costs, and a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation, and shared housing).

Eligibility for the Atlas Corps Fellowship.

  • Two or more years of relevant experience
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
  • English proficiency (oral, writing, reading)
  • Age 35 or younger
  • Apply to serve in a country other than where you are from (U.S. citizens are not eligible for the U.S. Fellowship)
  • Commitment to return to your home country after the 12-18 month Fellowship
  • Commitment to living on a basic stipend that only covers food, shared housing, and local transportation

1. Online Application

Part 1: You will need to create a login and you can save your responses so you can return to the application at any time. In Part 1 of the application (known as the “short form”), you provide contact information and complete the initial eligibility test, and if you pass the eligibility test, you’ll complete additional background questions and one short essay. NOTE: In order to sponsor candidates to come to the United States for one year as a Fellow, we require detailed information about each applicant. Please answer each question honestly and thoroughly. If you are found to be dishonest in the application, you will NOT be accepted as a Fellow and you will be sent home if you have been accepted.

Part 2 (by invitation only): Atlas Corps will review Part 1 applications and invite eligible candidates to complete Part 2 of the application (known as the “long form”), which includes additional questions about your skills and interests and several short essay questions. You will also be required to submit contact information for at least two references who know you in a professional capacity and will write a letter of recommendation about your skills and experiences as well as your potential for success as an Atlas Corps Fellow. You will need to send your requests for letter of recommendation directly through the application system. Your recommenders will receive an email that asks for a recommendation. More detailed instructions can be found in the online application form.

2. Atlas Corps Review Process (by invitation only): Atlas Corps will review Part 2 applications and select top candidates to interview via Skype with the Atlas Corps Selection Board, including Atlas Corps staff and nonprofit sector, government, and business leaders from multiple countries.

3. Host Organization Review Process (by invitation only): Candidates who pass the Atlas Corps interview stage will be designated as Semi-Finalists, which means they are eligible to be reviewed by potential Host Organizations for placements based on their interests and skillset and the organization’s needs.

4. Host Organization Interview Process (by invitation only): Host Organizations invite Semi-Finalists that best match their positions to conduct Skype video interviews with them, moving on to the Finalist stage.

5. Selection and Visa Process: Host Organizations will make their final recommendations to Atlas Corps, and Atlas Corps will notify the selected candidates. After being selected, Fellows will go to the U.S. Embassy in their respective countries to apply for a J-1 visa. Atlas Corps will provide support in obtaining this visa. Semi-Finalists who are not selected by a Host Organization will be notified and may be given the option to keep their application on file for consideration for the next class of the Fellowship, moving back to the Step 3, the Host Organization Review Process.

Timeline.

Atlas Corps receives hundreds of applications each month. Each of the steps listed above may take approximately 1-3 months. Most applications are reviewed within two major vetting periods each year. The vetting process may take several months to complete. You may apply at any time. We recommend submitting your application as soon as possible to initiate the review process. Please do not wait for any deadlines. See below for our approximate calendar, which is subject to change.

Tips: We encourage you to spend some time on your application, including having it be reviewed by a peer. Please check your email frequently for updates. Otherwise, you may risk missing critical information or deadlines. If you are accepted to the Fellowship, there may be a quick turnaround time between your acceptance and the beginning of the Fellowship. Fellowship start dates are not flexible, and assuming your visa is approved, you must begin your Fellowship with the Class to which you are accepted.

To Consider.

When you apply for the Atlas Corps Fellowship, you’re not applying for a specific Host Organization or a specific start date. You are applying for the opportunity to be considered by Atlas Corps and potential Host Organizations for placements starting throughout the year. Semi-Finalist applications are kept on file and considered for multiple classes unless the candidate withdraws their application. In some cases, strong applicants may be selected for the Fellowship in as little as 3-4 months after they submitted Part 1 of their application. In other cases, strong applicants may be considered for multiple classes before matching with a Host Organization placement.

Selection Timeline: Final decisions about each class of Fellows are made approximately 4-8 weeks before the class begins.

We are seeking highly motivated candidates to join us on a project beginning in 2019 on the molecular mechanisms of sensory neurogenesis. We study in particular the nociceptors, the specialized peripheral neurons that detect painful stimuli.

We aim to understand the role and mechanism of action of the Prdm12 gene. Prdm12 encodes an evolutionarily conserved epigenetic regulator of gene expression that has been found mutated in patients that suffer from a rare disease, Congenital Insensitivity to Pain, a dangerous condition that renders individuals completely unable to feel pain since their birth (Chen et al., Nat. Genet., 2015). To understand the molecular mechanisms that cause the painlessness, we are using the frog embryo and have generated Prdm12 null and conditional knock-out mouse models. We expect that the results of our work using these experimental systems as well as the identification of Prdm12 direct targets and interacting partners will help in the development of new strategies for treating pain.

The positions are funded by the Walloon government within the frame of the “Win2wal” program. They are open from 2 to 4 years and starting dates are flexible. The research will be performed in the laboratory of Developmental Genetics (Dr. Eric Bellefroid, http://gendev.ulb.ac.be/bellefroidlab/) that is part of the University of Brussels (ULB) Neuroscience Institute (UNI), the ULB Structural Biology and Biophysic laboratory (Dr. Abel Garcia-Pino, https://www.cm2ulb.be/) and the laboratory of Neuroscience (Dr. Laurence Ris, https://sharepoint1.umons.ac.be/FR/universite/facultes/fmp/services/neurosci/Pages/Equipe.aspx) at the University of Mons.

Preference will be given to applicants with a background in one of the following: mouse genetics, electrophysiology, cell and molecular biology and genome wide approaches (ChIP-seq,…).

Interested candidates should send a letter of motivation describing past research experiences and full CV to:

Eric Bellefroid (ebellefr@ulb.ac.be), Laurence Ris (Laurence.RIS@umons.ac.be) or Abel Garcia Pino (agarciap@ulb.ac.be) together with the name and e-mail address of 2 references

As populist parties emerge across Europe, increasing numbers of politicians and intellectuals are urgently calling for citizenship education to strengthen the public's democratic mind-set. However, democracy and education share a more troubled history than these recent calls might suggest. The question of what citizenship education means and how it should be applied has changed significantly over time and has been at the centre of controversial debates throughout the twentieth century. Different political and professional groups espoused competing concepts of (liberal, socialist and even communist) 'democratic' citizenship and education. These factions also collided with groups aspiring to various forms of 'authoritarianism'. Moreover, all varieties of 'democratic' citizenship education face a fundamental practical dilemma: Modern democracies need at least a loose set of democratic values and attitudes, but they cannot simply decree what these principles are without violating the democratic premise of freedom. In educational institutions, changing notions of citizenship and democracy also clash with the various forms of power that these organizations exercise over (young) people.

This workshop will trace the efforts undertaken to create, maintain and reform democracy through citizenship education during Europe's tempestuous twentieth century. Our aim is to examine concepts and practices of 'democratic' citizenship education, and how these notions and procedures conflicted and/or hybridized with nationalist, authoritarian and religious pedagogies. The workshop will study these issues on a European scale, mapping trajectories of 'democratic' citizenship education in different social, cultural and national contexts from a comparative and transnational perspective (and beyond a Western European bias). Reflecting on education as one of the principal instruments of social and political reform, we aim to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of the contested histories of democracy in Europe's twentieth century.

We encourage contributions that might focus on:

  • concepts of 'democratic' citizenship education and their effects on educational institutions, curricula, youth organizations and wider reform agendas;
  • practices of 'democratic' citizenship education in (model) schools and youth institutions, and the associated dilemmas and contradictions;
  • the role of human sciences such as philosophy, psychology and sociology in shaping, legitimizing and questioning notions and practices of citizenship, democracy and education.

Papers could also address specific periods in European history by exploring one or more of the following questions:

  • How were controversies surrounding democratic citizenship in education connected to the disputes about future political order in interwar Europe? How did these conflicts reflect both democracy's potential and its increasing fragility after the Great War?
  • How did education contribute to changing definitions of democratic citizenship after 1945 against the background of fascism, a devastating world war, new psychological research and the dawning age of superpower conflict? (Here, we especially encourage contributions that go beyond the well-researched case of West German re-education.)
  • What role did education play in the controversies surrounding democracy and citizenship between the 1960s and 1980s? How did the appearance of new social movements, the advent of mass consumption, and the emerging 'neo-liberal' cultures of self-improvement (and associated ideas of social order) feed into these disputes across Europe?

The workshop will take place at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (in the Interdisciplinary Centre for European Enlightenment Studies, Halle) on 7-9 November 2019. Please send your proposal (500 words max.) and a short CV to phillip.wagner(at)paedagogik.uni-halle.de by 15 January 2019 at the latest. We aim to cover travel costs and accommodation for panellists, and are planning to publish at least a selection of papers.

To exist in a democracy means to be counted, and ideally to feel as if what one does truly counts. At this summer school, we will discuss how the demography of a polity is presumed to impact its form of government. Thus, the summer school will address a few central questions:

  • Are there distinctive concerns associated with being over- versus underpopulated?
  • How and why does migration – both outward and inward – create anxiety that can throw the basis of democratic pluralism into question?
  • What are the various forms of “homogeneity” that different political ideologies seek to achieve or correct for? To what extent does a “longing for homogeneity” underpin the current rise of neo-authoritarian populism?
  • When and how is “the fear of small numbers” instrumentalized?
  • How can political systems – and democracy in particular – expand or limit the participation of certain groups in policymaking?

We propose to discuss some classic texts and chart a course through various sub-themes ranging from colonialism to “population politics” to Foucauldian “governmentality and biopolitics” to environmentalism, and aim to deal with different genres and disciplinary approaches such as political and social theory, history, film, fiction, etc.

The summer school offers the opportunity to work on these themes with leading scholars in the field, who include Holly Case, Craig Calhoun, Dilip Gaonkar, Ivan Krastev, Jan-Werner Müller, and Shalini Randeria. Besides lectures, discussions, and reading sessions, it also offers the possibility to pursue an optional writing component under the close supervision of long-time magazine editor John Palattella.

 

Location

It is will be held at Burg Feistritz, a picturesque castle embedded in the rolling hills of Lower Austria. The beauty and serenity of the historic scenery and the abundance of comfortable guest rooms create a perfect environment for the exchange of ideas, and offers many beautiful and distinctive spaces to engage, discuss, and reflect.

Eligibility

We invite applications from human and social sciences PhD and PostDoc students as well as faculty members (up to 5 years after PhD). 8-10 of the 25 places will be reserved for participants from Asia, Africa or Latin America.

Application

Applicants should send a CV, a Motivation Letter and a Letter of Recommendation. These documents should be submitted online via the IWM applications platform.

The deadline for application submission is March 31, 2019.

Selection

Applicants will be informed about the selection results by April 28, 2019. All costs related to participation are covered by the organizers. For any questions please contact us at summerschool@iwm.at
