WZB-ISSC Global Fellowship
Berlin, Germany





Scholarship / Financial aid: a grant+contribution to local accommodation (up to 500 EUR per month)

Date: four to six months

Deadline: September 15, 2014

Open to: early-career social scientists from a developing country


Announcement follows

The program partners

Located in the heart of Berlin, the WZB Berlin Social
Science Center is one of Europe’s leading nonuniversity
research institutes conducting basic social science research with a focus on problems of modern societies in a globalized world. Among the 160 German and international scientists are sociologists, political scientists, economists, legal scholars, and historians. The WZB offers a modern working environment where both equal opportunities
and the compatibility of work and family are highly valued.

The International Social Science Council (ISSC) is an international organization that works to bring the best social science to bear on the biggest challenges of our time. It does this, for example, by publishing the World Social Science Report and organizing the World Social Science Forum. With its World Social Science Fellows program, the ISSC aims to help build the next generation of social science leaders who can create knowledge for solutions to global challenges. In this programme,
talented early career social scientists are brought together at seminars to create new, interdisciplinary
perspectives on a global challenge. Following the seminars, World Social Science Fellows are part of a network that is expected to be the start of new, international research collaborations.

WZB-ISSC Global Fellowship Program
Call for Applications


The WZB, in cooperation with the ISSC, invites applications for one early-career scientist (Post-Doctoral researcher with no more than 5 years' work experience after their PhD or scientists without a PhD but with an equivalent level of research experience and output) residing and working
in a developing country to conduct research for up to six months at the WZB. The research project of the fellow should focus on global societal problems with particular relevance to developing country contexts. Moreover, it should be linked to both research conducted at the WZB and to the notion of "Transforming Global Relations for a
Just World," which is the topic of the ISSC's World
Social Science Forum 2015.

Objective

Through their Global Fellowship Programme, the WZB and the ISSC aim at contributing to building a new generation of outstanding social scientists in developing countries who are willing and able to contribute to solving current global problems.

The WZB-ISSC Global Fellowship Programme enables an outstanding early-career social scientist from a developing country to spend four to six months in the exciting and stimulating environment of an exceptional social science research organisation in the heart of Germany. Besides allowing the Fellow to focus entirely on a dedicated
research project, he/she is invited to participate in the intellectual life at the WZB. The Fellow will also become a member of the network of early career scientists the ISSC is building with its World Social Science Fellows programme.

The Fellowship

The WZB offers a grant for up to six months at a level commensurate with a German Post-Doctoral researcher, as well as a contribution to local accommodation (up to 500 EUR per month).
Economy travel costs to and from Berlin will be reimbursed according to the German Federal Travel Expenses Regulations. We offer a work place (equipped with PC, Internet access and communication support) as well as full library privileges and additional technical services. The selected Fellow will also receive support to participate in
the World Social Science Forum 2015.

While in residence, the selected fellow is required
to:
• Conduct a public lecture or an academic seminar at the WZB
• Write a report outlining a vision of his/her research field with relevance to developing countries in the 5 to 10 years to come
• Write or contribute towards a paper that can be presented at the World Social Science Forum 2015, to take place from 13 to 16 September 2015 in Durban, South Africa.

On return to his/her home country, the fellow is expected to share his/her knowledge with the scientific community there as well as to contribute to the further development of the local science and education system. This could be achieved, for instance, through teaching Master’s or PhD level courses (where appropriate) based on the research
done at the WZB.

Selection Process

Candidates should present:
• A letter of motivation (what is the project, why is it important, what will be the outcome), including the preferred timing of the research stay at the WZB as well as an explanation of the difference the stay will make in their personal careers and in their home institutions
(maximum 1 page).
• A summary of their main research and teaching contributions, indicating how these relate to the research topics at the WZB. Candidates should also address the societal relevance of their research (maximum 1 page).
• Two letters of recommendation from current or past senior colleagues.
• A curriculum vitae, including information on education, publications, participation in research projects and networks, teaching experience, awards and prizes received and other pertinent experiences. (Note: The majority of
the degrees should have been awarded in developing
countries).
• An indication of the candidate’s English language
proficiency.
• Agreement from their home institution to the research stay in Germany, if selected (applicable only if the candidate will be employed during the proposed period of the Fellowship).
• All information should be submitted electronically,
preferably in one PDF document, to:
international.affairs@wzb.eu.

The closing date for applications is September 15, 2014.
