The International Network University Division of Freie Universität Berlin calls for nominations for the Dahlem International Network Professorship for Gender Studies; a feature of the university’s Institutional Strategy in the German Excellence Initiative.
The visiting professorship encourages professors at Freie Universität from any field to invite an international researcher of outstanding academic achievement in the field of gender studies to join their project for one or two semesters. By integrating the visiting professor into an existing research project at Freie Universität, the International Network Professorship for Gender Studies aims to promote interdisciplinary and international gender studies and to widen the perspectives of current research at the university.
The professorship is announced for the winter semester of 2017/18 with the option of extending to the summer semester of 2018.
Applications must be submitted to the International Network University Division by May 1, 2017.
A Network Professorship is an appointment as a visiting professor and must adhere to the placement requirements of § 100 of the Berlin Higher Education Act (BerlHG), i.e. the candidate must demonstrate a professorial qualification or equivalent.
