Applications are invited for the Barbro Klein Fellowship Programme 2022-23 by the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS).
About Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS)
The Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS) is an institute for advanced study in Uppsala, Sweden. It is one of the nine member institutions of the Some Institutes for Advanced Study consortium, which brings together the world’s most distinguished institutes for advanced study.
About the Fellowship
The Barbro Klein Fellowship Programme is a newly launched research programme, which intends to advance the study of cultural diversity in a global perspective.
The fellowship is open to scholars from across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, with an emphasis on research on cultural and social diversity, cultural heritage and creativity, societal structures and public resistance, and varieties of cultural expressions in local and global perspective.
The programme gives fellows the opportunity to concentrate on their own research interests, free from the teaching and administrative obligations of ordinary university life. Fellows are, however, expected to be active members of the scholarly community of the Collegium and to participate in seminars and academic events beyond their own fields of specialization.
Scholars may apply for a full academic year or one semester.
- The fellowship programme encourages, but is not limited to, applications from talented younger scholars in non-Western countries and of underrepresented gender.
- At the time of application, the candidate must have held a PhD (or equivalent degree) for at least three years.
- The application must have a promising track record of independent achievements beyond the post-doctoral level, including significant publications, and be active in international fora.
- Fellows receive a monthly salary, the size of which will be decided after consultation with the fellow and a consideration of relevant circumstances.
- Applicants may want to consider seeking additional financial support from other sources, such as sabbatical leave.
- The Collegium will provide and pay for accommodation for fellows who do not live in the Stockholm–Uppsala region.
