Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, one of the leading research universities in Europe, with a more than 500-year-long tradition, is advertising up to five research fellowships for scholars active in global history. The university is committed to the highest international standards of excellence in research and  teaching.  Fellows  will be based at the interdisciplinary Munich Centre for Global History. During their stay, they will work on a research project of their own choice. While the programme is open to all topics in global history or its  neighbouring fields, we are particularly interested  in proposals that engage with a new research focus  on  “global dis:connections” that we have recently established in cooperation with CASLMU (https://www.en.cas.uni-

Fellows have no teaching obligation. They are expected to work on their research projects and actively engage with the scholarly community at the university and particularly at the centre. The fellowships are open to postdoctoral researchers from  all disciplines. Scholars who are  already advanced in their academic careers and  have a strong international track record are explicitly encouraged to apply. Depending on  the situation of the applicant and the character of the project, the duration of the fellowship will be between one and three months. Fellowships for the summer term 2021 should be taken up between mid-April and the end of July 2021.
The fellowship entails economy travel to and from Munich, a monthly living allowance, free housing in a furnished studio apartment in Munich as well as office space at the Munich Centre for Global History. Health insurance or other social benefits are  not part of the fellowship and the responsibility of the fellow. Applications will include a letter of motivation, a short outline of the research to be done during the fellowship (1-2 pages) and a CV.
