The Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies (GPTS) is part of the Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe in a Global Context: Shifting Asymmetries in Cultural Flows" at Heidelberg University (http://www.asia-europe.uni-heidelberg.de/). The objective of the Cluster is to examine processes of cultural exchange with a strong focus on interdisciplinary research. The Cluster challenges the master narrative of asymmetrical Western domination along with its historical explanation, its methodology and the resulting structures of humanities and social science research. For 2009 the GPTS offers 3 Post-Doctoral Short-Term Scholarships in Transcultural Studies
The aim of our joint graduate programme is to train outstanding graduate students from the social sciences and economics disciplines in the field of labour market and occupational research. The postdoctoral scholarship provides the opportunity to participate in a dynamic working environment, to conduct collaborative research, and to study innovative research topics. Access to excellent micro data in the fields of employment and social security is granted.
The monthly scholarship ranges from € 1,365 to € 1,467 depending on age. It is initially offered for one year but may be extended for up to a total of two years. In addition, € 103 per month are paid for non-personnel expenses such as travelling costs.
