Launch of Anglo-German Fellowship Programme

The Department of Politics and International Relations and the Institute of European Law at the University of Oxford - in cooperation with the Universities of Bremen and Göttingen - launches a new Fellowship Programme.

The three universities invite applications for a number of two-year postdoctoral Fellowships to work mainly at the University of Oxford. Applications are invited from scholars who work on the transformation of the modern state with a focus on Western Europe and/or European integration, be it in political science, law, history or economics. The programme welcomes international comparative perspectives extending to all parts of Europe as well as comparisons between the European Union and other regional blocks. Fellowships will start in September 2009.

The programme aims to enable outstanding scholars at the start of their careers to spend time in an intellectually stimulating environment and to turn their finished doctoral theses into an English-language manuscript suitable for publication with a good university press. The programme also intends to establish an international network of leading scholars specialising in the study of the state.
