Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Freie Universität Berlin
Joint Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program 'Human Rights under Pressure - Ethics, Law, and Politics'
Deadline for application: 20 February 2015
“There are three primary categories of contemporary ‘pressures’ that constitute systematic challenges for human rights, requiring new thinking and interdisciplinary research: first, crises and emergencies; second, the reality of diversity; and finally, intensified global interactions in the process of globalization.”
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Freie Universität Berlin are now accepting applications for the second round of Post-Doctoral Fellowships in their joint interdisciplinary program 'Human Rights under Pressure – Ethics, Law and Politics' (HR-UP), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Einstein Foundation Berlin.
HR-UP offers researchers a unique opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research on the most pressing contemporary challenges for human rights, including issues arising from crises and emergencies, globalization and diversity. Post-doctoral fellows will participate in the full HR-UP program curriculum, including interdisciplinary colloquia and annual summer schools.
The fellowship includes a monthly stipend of 1416 € + 103 € for material expenses awarded for a period of 12 months, with a possibility of extension up to 24 months. The deadline for applications is February 20th, 2015. For further information, and to apply, please visit the HR-UP website.
