The fellowship provides a generous salary and an allocation for research and training costs. Staff at the OU will provide templates and offer advice and support in developing your application. Applicants are encouraged to join the Department of Languages and Applied Linguistics, where they will have access and contribute to cutting-edge research into the power of language and the function of digital technology to express cultural, political and social meanings and to express people’s identities in a multilingual and multicultural interconnected world. Our community of researchers is diverse, and we especially welcome applications in the following area this year: Memories and Identity in a digital world:  public debate in digital media, transformation of the public debate by the use of digital technology, analysis of the role and function of digital media in the public and private memorialisation process.

  • A case study using the German memorialisation (of National Socialism and/or Communism in Germany) is envisaged. Hence applicants must have at least a good reading knowledge of German as well as an interest in qualitative as well as quantitative data analysis.
