Call for Applications: Fellowships at the Center for Global Cooperation
Research, University of Duisburg-Essen, Research Cluster “Global
Governance Revisited”

The Center for Global Cooperation Research – Käte-Hamburger-Kolleg “Political Cultures of World Society“ at the University of Duisburg-Essen offers up to three fellowships in the research cluster on “Global Governance Revisited”. Fellows will work at the Center for a period of typically six to twelve months between July 2012 and June 2013.

The Fellowship entails office space in fully equipped offices and a competitive stipend commensurate with the applicant’s level of professional experience. We offer fellowships at three levels: Selected applicants with a completed Ph.D. will work as Postdocs. Applicants with at least three years of postdoc experience and some first responsibility for staff may be employed as Fellows. Associate and Full Professors as well as other more senior scholars may be offered a place as Senior Fellows.

The Center:
The Center for Global Cooperation Research is an independent research institution of the University of Duisburg-Essen. It cooperates closely with the Institute for Development and Peace (INEF) in Duisburg, the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities (KWI) in Essen, and the German Development Institute (DIE) in Bonn. The Center is located at Duisburg’s Inner Harbor, which combines industrial heritage with modern office buildings and a vibrant urban culture. Close to the city center, the Duisburg Campus with the Social Science Department and INEF is within short reach. The participation of the KWI facilitates the coupling with the neighboring city of Essen, the lead city during the Ruhr area’s time as Europe’s Cultural Metropolis in 2010. Through the DIE, the Center is also represented in the UN City of Bonn with its tight web of international institutions.

The Center focuses on the cultural premises and dynamics of emergent governance structures in current world society and analyzes the possibilities for global cooperation. Its four research clusters focus on (1) The (Im)Possibility of Cooperation, (2) Global Cultural Conflicts and Transcultural Cooperation, (3) Global Governance Revisited, and (4) Paradoxes and Perspectives of Democratization. The research cluster on
“Global Governance Revisited” is led by Professor Tobias Debiel and Dr. Rainer Baumann. The Center offers a place for reflection and exchange for researchers from the social sciences, the natural sciences, and the humanities, as well as for selected practitioners from all regions of the world.
