Association with the SFB/TRR 138
During the first funding phase of the SFB/TRR 138 (until 31.12.2017), there is the option for scholars to become associated as members of the collaborative research centre. Such association does not imply any funding in the context of the sub-projects of the research centre, but it does offer researchers the opportunity to participate in the activities of the SFB/TRR 138 (especially in the concept groups) and to promote scholarly exchange with the full members concerning their own and common research projects.
The themes studied by the associate members will thus need to fit theoretically, methodologically, and substantively with the research profile of the SFB/TRR 130. If they become associated with the SFB/TRR 138, researchers will have the right to participate on a consulting, non-voting basis in general membership meetings.
Becoming an associate of the SFB/TRR 138 will not establish a right to financing through third-party funding and/or future full membership.
Those entitled to apply for associate status include academics who are member of the University of Gießen, Marburg or the Herder Institute (Centre for Historical Central Europe Research). Generally, applicants will be expected to have completed a doctorate.
The Executive Board of the SFB/TRR 138 requests an informal application to become an associate, which should include the following documentation:
- Letter of Motivation
- Outline of the applicant’s research projects/interests (up to five pages)
- List of publications (selected)
- Curriculum vitae
The Executive Board will review the application and let the applicant know of its decision as rapidly as possible.
