Since 2019, the University of Regensburg (UR) and the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) have hosted the Leibniz ScienceCampus Europe and America in the Modern World (LSC). Starting in October 2024, the project will enter a second funding phase, continuing its efforts to develop better understanding of European-American connections and entanglements, historically and today. It brings together multidisciplinary expertise from across the humanities and social sciences, including cultural studies, history, political science, law and economics, with a focus on diverse regions of the Europe and the Americas.

In the second funding phase, the ScienceCampus will fund two international early career research networks, each up to a total of 22,500 EUR. The networks aim to offer a flexible platform for innovative interdisciplinary research and cross-border exchanges furthering the empirical, methodological and theoretical agenda of the LSC. The networks are to be led by two Regensburg-based postdoctoral researchers (people with at least a PhD but no professorship), each for a period of two years. Further members can include doctoral researchers, other postdocs and professors, both from Regensburg and from national and international partners, including those of the ScienceCampus. You can find the calls for applications here in German and English. The deadline for full applications is 30 November 2024, with expressions of interest invited by 15 September 2024.
