Research Center for Contemporary History in Hamburg (FZH)

The Research Center for Contemporary History in Hamburg (FZH) invites applications for fellowships on urbanity and urban history in a contemporary historical perspective. The fellowships offer scholars with a track record of relevant research the opportunity to work on their own project in this field in Hamburg. The call is primarily aimed at scholars (PostDoc / Professor) working at universities or research institutions outside of Germany.  The duration of the fellowships is up to four months each.

The cooperation with the FZH offers fellows the opportunity to participate in and benefit from the academic life of both the FZH and HIAS. This includes public events as well as transdisciplinary exchange in internal colloquia. The collaboration thus offers the fellows as well as the two cooperating institutions valuable networking potential beyond their own respective disciplines.
