Four Junior Research Groups (JRG)

Call for Application

The University of Bayreuth is a research-oriented university with internationally competitive, interdisciplinary focus areas in research and teaching. The Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bayreuth, funded by the Excellence Strategy of the German Federal and State Governments, is planning to establish four Junior Research Groups (JRG) to commence on July 1, 2020. We are currently seeking to appoint

Four Junior Research Group Leaders (m/f/d)

for a funding period of four years (pay grade TV-L 14). We expect the holders of the positions to implement an innovative research programme, designed for the duration of the funding period and integrating up to two doctoral students, whose selection and supervision will be the responsibility of the JRG leaders. The research projects should contribute to the theoretical agenda of the Cluster and connect to or complement the thematic fields addressed in the Cluster. The JRGs will work under the umbrella of the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies within the Cluster of Excellence, which runs an international fellow programme and specialized programmes for the training of postdoctoral scholars. The doctoral students will pursue their degrees within the Bayreuth International Graduate School of African Studies (BIGSAS), the graduate school of the Cluster of Excellence.

Deadline : December 31, 2019
