WZB-ISSC Global Fellowship Call for Applications


The ISSC and the WZB Berlin Social Science Center are proud to announce the second call for applications for a WZB-ISSC Global Fellowship, which enables an outstanding early career social scientist from a developing country to spend four to six months in 2015 at the WZB to undertake research.

The WZB-ISSC Global Fellowship is a cooperation between the WZB and the ISSC. They invite applications for one early career scientist (postdoctoral 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 in 2015 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.

Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

The closing date for applications is 30 September 2014.

All enquiries should be directed to international.affairs@wzb.eu
