The Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies of the Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe in a Global Context" at Heidelberg University welcomes applications for up to six doctoral scholarships beginning in the winter semester 2017/18.

The three-year programme offers a monthly scholarship of 1.200 Euro. It further supports its members in framing their research through advanced courses as well as individual supervision and mentoring. Half of the scholarships are reserved for young scholars from Asia.

Applicants are expected to propose a doctoral project with a strong affiliation to one of the four research areas of the Cluster (Governance & Administration, Public Spheres, Knowledge Systems, Historicities & Heritage). They must hold an M.A. or equivalent in a discipline of the humanities or social sciences with an above-average grade and provide proof of advanced language skills in English.

Applications, including a CV, a letter of intention, a project proposal, a schedule for the dissertation, and two letters of recommendation are submitted through an Online Application System.

The deadline for applications is March 15, 2017.
