Four new Postdoctoral Fellows selected

The Zukunftskolleg has just closed its 18th call for applications for 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowships (the closing date for applications was 10 October 2023).

Postdoctoral Fellowships are intended for researchers in the early stages of their careers who plan to develop and implement an independent research project. The fellowships are open to researchers from all fields represented at the University of Konstanz. Each fellow is a member of both a university department and the Zukunftskolleg. Additionally, fellows of the Zukunftskolleg can be affiliated to the Clusters of Excellence at the University of Konstanz: “Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour” or “Politics of Inequality”.

We received 211 applications in total, of which – after a formal eligibility check – 67 were eligible: 26 from female, 40 from male and 1 from other researchers; 11 applications came from Germany, 56 from 29 different countries. In a first pre-selection, the Recruitment Committee chose 21 final candidates. In its meeting on 25-26 January 2024, the Committee decided to offer a 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowship to the following researchers:

  • Henrique Almeida de Castro (History and Sociology & cluster “The Politics of Inequality”)
  • Ekaterina Suverina (History and Sociology)
  • Julia Ditter (Literature)
  • Angelo Javier Neira Albornoz (Computer and Information Science)
