The Center for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences (Kolleg-Forschungsgruppe, KFG) ‘Universalism and Particularism in European Contemporary History’ at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) is seeking to appoint

3 Junior Fellowships (PostDocs)

with a research topic focusing on the economy or human rights or religion/secularity in contemporary European history. Applications with other research topics, connected to the overall agenda of the KFG, are welcome. Future Calls for Junior Fellowships will be following every term. The Center is seeking for three junior fellows for the summer term 2025 (April-September), with a preferred starting date on 1 April 2025.


The KFG fellowships are awarded for 3-6 months in the winter term 2024-2025 (October-March). We offer a stipend of €2,400 and a rent subsidy of €1,800 on a monthly basis as well as travel costs reimbursement for a single trip to Munich at the beginning of the fellowship period and a single return trip at the end. Apart from engaging in their individual research, fellows are expected to actively participate in the Center’s weekly colloquia and to contribute to the development of a methodological anthology on the main concepts of historical and political sciences connected with universalism and particularism in European contemporary history. The Junior Fellows are also expected to jointly organize a two-day workshop in Munich in cooperation with the KFG team (funded by the Center).
During the research stay in Munich, Junior Fellows will have the opportunity to exchange with KFG directors Martin Schulze Wessel, Kiran Klaus Patel, and Andreas Wirsching, Distinguished Fellows Marta Bucholc, Alexander Libman, and Angelika Nußberger, as well as Senior Fellows. Interdisciplinarity plays a significant role for the KFG’s research, so that applications are possible with topics contributing to any of the three research foci, or to the overall agenda of the Center.


  • Applicants must have a PhD in a respective field.
  • The working languages of the KFG are English and German, therefore excellent spoken and written knowledge of one of the languages is required.
  • Regular presence at the Center in Munich is obligatory.

The latest submission date for applications is June 16, 2024.

Applications must be sent in English or German language in one PDF file to the KFG coordination office:
