7 fellowships/scholarships for doctoral candidates
The Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences
University of Bamberg, Germany
Applications: October 30, 2013

These are available from April 1st, 2014, for three years (subject to satisfactory progress reviews after 12 and 24 months).

BAGSS is a multidisciplinary Graduate School funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) as part of the German Excellence Initiative. We are seeking to stimulate and guide cutting-edge doctoral research on some of the most crucial challenges modern knowledge-based societies are facing. Specialised research agendas have been grouped into four thematic pillars:

Pillar 1: Education, personal development and learning from early childhood to adulthood

Pillar 2: Education and social inequality across the entire life course

Pillar 3: Changes in human capital, labour markets and demographic structures and their impact on social inequality in modern societies

Pillar 4: Governance, institutional change and political behaviour

Qualification and requirements:
We are inviting applications from highly qualified graduates from the fields of Sociology, Psychology, Educational Science, Political Science, Economics, Demography and Statistics. Qualified graduates of related subjects with a strong background in the empirical social sciences are also encouraged to apply. Candidates must hold a Master‘s degree (or equivalent) in one of the aforementioned subjects or be very close to completion. Successful applicants will be required to take up their residence in Bamberg, a city noted for its very high quality of life as well as great conditions for research and study.

Remuneration for the doctoral fellowships is based on Grade E 13 TV-L (50%) of the German Public Service Salary Scale. There is a teaching obligation of two hours per week for only one semester during the three years. Holders of the doctoral scholarships receive a monthly stipend of 1.365 Euro, plus family allowances and child-care expenses in accordance with the DFG guidelines where applicable.

The Graduate School is committed to diversity, equal opportunities and the compatibility of family and career. It therefore explicitly encourages applications from women. As an international research institution, the School particularly welcomes applications from abroad. Applicants with disabilities possessing essentially equivalent qualifications will receive preferential consideration.

The deadline for the submission of your application is Wednesday, October 30th, 2013.
