We work, teach and research for more justice, sustainability and diversity in educational processes and systems, the economy and society, culture and the environment.

Within the scope of the advertised position, the selected candidate should develop and submit to the German Research Foundation (DFG, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft), for example within the funding lines of the DFG’s Individual Research Grants program, Emmy Noether Program, a funding application for her/his own position and hence for the continuation of her/his research at Europa-Universität Flensburg. Through this start-up funding, EUF aims to promote and support early-stage researchers by giving them access to special qualification and employment opportunities.

This year's call for proposals targets early-stage scholars with experience in a discipline represented by Europa-Universität Flensburg. The planned research project can be based outside of the university’s existing research centers, or can be connected to these. It is expected to be an innovative project that ties in with the academic profile of the corresponding discipline.

Duties:

  • To write a proposal for the research associate’s own position (DFG grant module: Eigene Stelle/“one’s own position”) and submit it the DFG before the end of the employment period
  • To inform the EUF Vice President for Research in writing of the submission and the DFG decision regarding the aforementioned proposal
  • To present the proposed research project at an open university event (for example, a conference, colloquium, or workshop) at the end of the employment period

Requirements:

  • Postdoctoral early-stage researchers from EUF or other universities or research institutions, who hold a doctoral title with a minimum grade of "magna cum laude” and who are researching and working on the subject area within a discipline represented at Europa-Universität Flensburg.
  • As a required condition, the proposed research project and position must be anchored at

Europa-Universität Flensburg.

 

Application requirements:

Qualified early-stage researchers may apply for this position by submitting an exposé (max. 5 pages) in which the applicant clearly and concisely indicates how the requested project will be anchored at EUF, its content, scope and objectives, the state of current research, and the applicant’s own work to date. A recommendation from an outside expert, affirming the quality of the proposed research pro- ject and the existence of a research gap, must also be included. The application must also include a statement from an EUF-internal academic regarding how and to what extent the applicant’s work can be integrated into the university’s research profile.

 

The application must contain the following information:
