The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) of the University of Salzburg welcomes applications for its new Visiting Program.
The CEPR is dedicated to the research of poverty and social exclusion, in particluar in relation to questions of ethics and philosophy. It has currently members with backgrounds in social geography, political science, theology, history, literature studies, and philosophy.
The Visiting Program is open to researchers at all career stages, who have an interest in poverty research (broadly construed), and in particular in the ethical and philosophical challenges related to poverty. It is expected that the Visiting Fellow pursues a well-defined research project during her stay, presents her work once in the weekly research seminar and also participates in other activities of the CEPR. Priority will be given to applicants whose project connects well to one of the three ongoing research areas of the CEPR: Normative Ethics and Catholic Social Tradition, Fundamental Poverty, and Culture and Precarious Life Worlds.
The CEPR can offer office space, a PC, access to the University library, and accommodation nearby (single room). No salary or stipend can be offered and the Visiting Fellow is responsible for her own insurance during the stay. Research stays are possible between two and six months.
If you are interested, please send your application to the coordinator Gottfried Schweiger at Gottfried.schweiger[a]sbg.ac.at. Your application should include a short CV (max 5 pages), a project description (1500 words) including the duration of the planned stay, and a letter of motivation, outlining why you want to stay at the CEPR and what you expect from your stay. Please send your application in one PDF- file.
Applications are possible on an ongoing basis and will be evaluated as soon as we receive them. Applications for stays in 2018 should reach us before 1 October 2017.
Questions regarding the Visiting Program should be addressed to Gottfried Schweiger at gottfried.schweiger[a]sbg.ac.at.
