The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung will fund up to ten post-doc-scholarships worldwide in the Global South to realize individual research projects at institutions in the South and to participate in our International Research Group on Authoritarianism & Counter-Strategies.
We´re looking for research proposals on the global entanglements of authoritarian politics, reactionary movements and ideologies, and emancipatory counter-strategies. We are especially interested in studies that propose a global perspective for and from the Global South on this issue, i.e. that critically relate regional problems to global economic and power relations and transnational actor networks and propose creative, inter- and transdisciplinary research strategies. We favour scholar-activist methodologies—i.e. rigorous academic work that is embedded in actual left-wing political projects, movements or initiatives—and are looking for research output that reflect this scholar-activist character.
We ask interested scholars to find a suitable institution themselves as well as a mentor for their project. All necessary documents can of course be downloaded from our application portal. Please note that funding starts earliest in November 2019 and ends in December 2021. Financial support provided to postdoctoral researchers will be based on salaries paid for comparable, full-time academic positions in the respective region, and as such will vary from country to country.
Due to funding stipulations, only citizens of ODA recipient countries are eligible to apply.
Application deadline is 4 August 2019.
If you have any doubts, don´t hesitate to contact us directly or write to GlobalDialogue@rosalux.org.
