Application Procedures

The Winter School offers young doctoral and post-doctoral scholars a unique opportunity to contribute to a broader discussion with their own research and ideas. We particularly encourage applications from researchers from the humanities and the social sciences with a strong interest in theoretical debates in an interdisciplinary setting.

How to apply?

Your application should include the following: • a letter of motivation, indicating how you expect to profit from participating in this Winter

School and how you can contribute, in turn, to the discussions • a CV of max. two pages • an abstract (500 words) of your current research project • two referees we might contact

What do we offer?

IASH will cover your travel expenses as well as accommodation and meals at Schloss Münchenwiler. You will receive a reader with preparatory material and have the opportunity to present your research on the Winter School homepage and blog. Most important of all, you are offered a stimulating environment conducive to state-of-the-art discussion of pressing scientific and societal questions. You will enter into exchange with senior scholars and peers, which will hopefully prove fruitful beyond the Winter School, not least by connecting you to an international network of like-minded researchers.
