Senior and Junior Postdoctoral Fellowships, University of Erfurt

Dedicated to historical, critical, and social scientific approaches to the study of religion, as well as a relentlessly reflexive critique of the theories, methods, and categories used in such study.

There is an opening at the Max Weber Kolleg, Erfurt, Germany, for up to 10 research fellowships. This is targeted at experienced scholars, i.e., applicants must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience at the call deadline. Applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Germany for more than twelve months in the three years immediately prior to the call deadline.

While inter-disciplinary, the opening is highly relevant for scholars of religion\s; among topics for research projects it lists the following areas:

  • Theories of human action in the social science and humanities and their bearing on normative questions and social criticism;
  • Interactions between cultures, social orders, structures of temporality and mentalities in the context of  change;
  • Religion, science and law as sources of social organisation, innovation and meaning.
