Historical & Philosophical Studies - UK Jobs

The Käte Hamburger Centre for Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic Studies (CAPAS) is a Centre for Advanced Studies at Heidelberg University. It gathers international scholars and scientists to research collaboratively on ideas and experiences of the doom of worlds and their aftermath. Our mission is to encourage the dialogue between the humanities and the social, natural and life sciences, relating to (A) the apocalyptic and postapocalyptic imaginary (ideas, images, discourses), (B) historical events that were perceived or framed as (post-)apocalyptic experiences, and (C) current, empirically observable developments that could bring about the end of the world as we know it, and its aftermath scenarios. CAPAS is dedicated to innovative research relevant to society at large, particularly in areas beyond traditional academic boundaries. For further information on CAPAS, please refer to our website https://www.capas.uni-heidelberg.de.
The focus of the 2023-2024 academic year is on the imaginaries and concepts of the (post-)apocalypse, with special regard to Europe and Asia. The aim is to explore the imaginary of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic worlds in a transcultural and transdisciplinary perspective. Proposals regarding the theoretical or methodological frame of CAPAS and on inter- and transdisciplinary approaches are also welcome. We invite applications for up to 10 Fellowships from October 2023 for the 2023-2024 academic year. Fellowships are available for a duration of up to 12 months, including at least one academic term (October to February or April to July).

Fellows will be provided with an office space and logistic support. Fellows who take an unpaid leave from their home institution during their fellowship will receive financial compensation in form of a stipend (approx. 3.500 to 8.000 EUR).

Financial support is capped by the regulation of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. 
Eligibility
To be eligible for a fellowship at CAPAS, the candidate must at least hold the rank of assistant professor or equivalent. Applicants from scientific/empirical fields ideally with at least 5 years of post-doctoral experience are also eligible.
