The Forum Internationale Wissenschaft (FIW) at the University of Bonn, Germany, invites applications for
(full-time, for 6 months within the period from 1 October 2021 until 30 September 2023, funded by the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD).
We invite researchers and science policy professionals to explore and discuss the current state and possible futures of internationalization in higher education and research cooperation. Internationalization has opened up opportunities for academic exchange and cross-border mobility for students, researchers and academic staff. However, several global crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, reinforced global inequality, and rising nationalism indicate the necessity to rethink what internationalization is about and how it will look like in the future. With the visiting professorships, we intend to engage in an international academic discussion on how the participation in higher education and its openness to international and intercultural exchange can continue despite global challenges that have multiplied lately. We are interested in diverse global and comparative perspectives that are not restricted to the Global North. Therefore we particularly invite applications from scholars based in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Candidates are invited to submit by 30 April 2021 an application package including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a short outline for a research project and a list of topics they would teach in a single PDF via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Please indicate for which term(s) within the project period (October 2021 to September 2023) you would like to come to Bonn and how your stay can be synchronised with your research and teaching obligations at your home institution.
If you have any questions, please contact Prof. Dr. David Kaldewey, Director of the FIW’s Science Studies Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Lena Laube, Managing Director of the FIW (email@example.com).
